'Cos You’re Gone


I feel like a song without the words.
A bird without its wings.
A man without his soul.
A heart without a home.

I feel like a man who has lost his mind.
A youth who has lost his dreams.
A king who has lost his crown.
A knight who has lost his sword.

I feel like a ship beneath the waves.
A child who‘d lost his way.
A night without the stars.
A sky without the sun.

You were the smile on my face.
The joy in my heart.
The dreams in my mind.
The sun in my day.
But now you’re no more.

No words conceived can describe,
No words written can convey;
How I feel, how it hurts, how much I missed you.
Cos I wish you’re here, in my life again.
For when you’re in my arms, I feel I’m home.

Though many years had past,
Since you’re gone.
Though many suns had set,
Since you’re gone.
It hurts still, like its yesterday
But I know someday,
We’ll be together again

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
