You’ve gone to a better world, they say
But then you’ve left me here
alone in the hands of this cruel world.
I hear your voice every passing second
Feel the hotness of your breath against my cheeks
What do I do to stop these never-ending tears
and a heart that beats your name.
I’m broken into bits and pieces
and want to tear myself apart
the heart which deeply, madly and fondly loved yours
now is left aghast.
As I stand here on this starry night,
Neither do I want to breathe nor do I want my heart to beat.
I look above to let out a silent prayer
And a small little star twinkle at me.
I know darling, you are up there
Whispering to me that it’s not the be all and end all.
I have promise in my heart and hope in my eyes
I will walk among the stars and the cloudless skies!
