And my darling when these eyes cry in the night for you
do you awaken, does your soul take flight to caress away my blues?
Do you come and lay your head upon my tender breast,
hearing the pounding of my spirit as it beats with weariness?
And when at last my heart is at rest, do you slip away through time
back to the place from whence you came, back to when you were mine?
My heart you broke long ago, and though I can’t forgive
I’ll love you in blackest of nights for as long as I breathe and live
And though we’ll never touch again, I’ll remember your soul
for it is woven within my own, and together we were whole.
