The night was dark, no moon, no star
Thunder raged on like a soldier in war
A streak of lightning stared me in the eye
I stared back, my eyes too dry to cry
The pain was fresh, the wound still raw
A fate so cruel, that never before I saw
My hands reached out and shook in fear
the wind roared "he is no more here!"
Why did you leave my side so soon!?
had not you promised to bring me the moon!?
Those kind eyes I longed to see, those strong arms that cared
If only I was taken and you had been spared!
It was a crash so deafening
yet I did not hear a thing
Except the silent tears you shed
Even as you lay cold and dead..
I lay on my bed, lost in a trance
my spirits rose though just a nuance
My lips curved into a tremulous smile
knowing you are watching me all the while
Dew drops on roses so fresh
soothed me like a mother's caress
the golden rays seeped gently in
as though to cleanse many a sin
Love knows no body , no form or time
Just two souls ,yours and mine
Like the night , will disappear, this agony
Every new day , a bittersweet symphony...
