Why do you haunt my soul,
Causing me such heartache,
Through the years new hurt unfolds.
Lost without your arms to hold me,
No gentle kiss upon my brow,
Many years I have missed you,
Yet these thoughts I still allow.
I dream of the time of yore,
When together we were one,
Today I dread the daybreak,
Awakening I wish to shun.
In the darkness you are mine,
I can hold you in treasured dreams,
But stars linger not in the day,
Inside my soulful heart screams.
I long for the time of passing,
To join you again I'll be whole,
Until then my darling love,
This aching heart I can't console.
