I can see you but you’re not in sight,
I am with you but we don’t meet,
I hear you speak but we don’t talk
You are my memories in daytime,
And my dreams that come at night.
I hold you but we don’t embrace,
I smell your scent but you’re not there,
I sense your thoughts but I’m asleep,
You are all the touches on my skin,
And all that whispers upon my face.
I feel your warmth but I am cold,
I taste your thirst but I can’t drink,
I know your hunger but I don’t eat,
You were all I ever wanted,
And all my tales that were untold.
I’m at your grave but you’re not here,
I bring you flowers but you can’t smell,
I share my woes but you don’t help,
You were all that was good and true,
And all that’s left is hurt and fear.
I yearn for you but know you’re gone,
I bear the pain but fear I’m weak,
I hope for peace but the war still rages.
You were all that made me strong,
You were my life, you were my one.
