Pathways to new lovers lit by pale moonlight,
Whispers of desire echo their hunger in the night.
Endless devotion promised comes from deep within,
Perpetual affections are journeys we freely begin.
Desire burns in endless flames, enraged passion to our core,
Trickling sweat, molten lava is when I became yours.
Our journey suddenly halted, the scales heavy on one side,
For me there was no warning your devotion had died. Can you hear my heart cry, 'I wish you were here'? I sit alone and wonder Why my sunlight disappeared.
Bitter cold, winter frost where sunbeams once pranced,
Stinging insects buzzing where butterflies once danced.
I wish that you had waited, just stalled, for one more day,
I tried to send a letter but you had already gone away.
My letter would have told you I completely understood,
The true meaning of the words you were unsure I ever would.
Now we will never know if at last we had it right.
I wish you hadn’t deserted me before the new sunlight. Can’t you hear my heart crying 'I wish you were here'? I’m here alone and wonder why My sunlight just disappeared.
