When love is lost the heart becomes disarrayed
With the brightest star in the heavens forever gone
And darkness flooding the sorrowing weeping soul
With all precious dreams of what might have been
Vanishing with the light with every tear that falls.
Happiness swept away with no laughter heard again.
Soul buffeted by the fury of the breaking storm
When all is broken asunder and cruelly crushed.
Heart sorely wounded, bleeds and grieves
Love stumbles and falls becoming prey
Unable to withstand the change from light to dark
When flowers of the heart no longer grow to cherish
Nor the soul's lilting music of lovers sweetly inspire
For love is lost because you have gone from me.
