I remember that night
It was bitter and cold...
The light had extinguished,
as if the sun had ceased to burn.
The darkness moved to surround me
Encircling my flesh and piercing my skin.
The shadow slithered slowly through my body
Into my heart where it has stayed.
The absence has overtaken me
Leaving me withered and without purpose
I long for the light
Her presence is the sun
Her eyes the stars
Her beauty leaves me breathless
She is my love, my light, my life
Without her the world is nothing
Everything is illuminated
