Saying good night, at the end of each day,
I'm pained she's not here, but miles away.
Decades ago, she once was my bride.
Then I made a mistake, now I'm empty inside.
With her being there, I do nothing but cry.
Closing my eyes, I try to force sleep,
With longing inside, I again start to weep.
Again I remember, what I once said to she,
We'll meet in the stars, and waiting I'll be.
Once we're united, let our spirits run free.
Though distance tends, to keep us apart,
I long for and hold her, near in my heart.
Nights for now, can rarely be ours,
We're married to others, and stuck behind bars.
We'll each close our eyes, and then meet in the stars.
Recalling those words, I again start to smile,
Close gently my eyes, lessening the miles.
I see all the stars, how beautifully arranged,
But she is not there, and nothing has changed.
More lovesick I get, with no love we'll exchange.
I wait there, alone, with hope in my heart,
Cursing the life, that kept us apart.
When off in the distance, wisps start to churn,
An image appears, of something long yearned,
Tears start to flow..., you've finally returned.
