Why have you gone? How could you go?


Why have you gone? How could you go
Still knowing that I love you so
My life is empty, still as stone
Each day a struggle all alone

I hunger for your gentle touch
Your compliments that meant so much
The beauty of your smiling face
Your body clothed in supple lace

My life with you was nothing less
Than earthly pleasures heaven blessed
A world of touch and form and sight
Extraordinary day and night

When first we met I knew at once
That whether days or weeks or months
Time with you was beyond measure
Beyond joy and beyond pleasure

Then for what seemed eternity
I loved just you and you just me
A timeless love beyond all doubt
A timeless love whose time ran out

What of my life is left to live
What more of me is left to give
Just memories but none to share
A broken heart but none to care.
