Awakening, my brain still fuzzy
Stretching, my body stiff from sleep
Reaching, my hand touches cold pillow
Remembering, you are no longer there
I'm sinking ever further into this cold abyss
So deeply I can't see the light
I try to climb but the walls are smooth
Escape isn't in my sight
he makes me laugh
I always seem to get it wrong
Whenever it counts the most
I need to be set free from my fear and doubt
I am left to wonder what my life is about
When I think things are calm
When I think things are right
No matter what we do
No matter what we say
No matter how we work
No matter how we play
I never knew when you arrived,
Had no clue when you left.
How long were you with me,
If you were with me at all?
You came along when I needed someone most.
You listened where no one else would.
You made me feel like someone cared.
The pain returns with equal force
Sadness overwhelms me
Again, I weep.
