Only a Memory

I felt the pain like it was new,

each day it grew.

Stronger and stronger until I couldn’t bear it anymore.

I couldn’t shake the question in my mind,

Why did you leave me behind?


Alone in the darkness you turned off my light,

without my sunshine I live in constant night.

Living my life in reverse.

What more can I do,

but sit down and remember you.


Today, although you’ve been away for so long,

in the flame of your memory, I grow strong.
