My body yearns for a smile that’s real
The lifting warmth of a gentle touch
A whispered laugh, so suttle meant only for me
I want to see into her soul,
Through the gatekeepers that once danced like fireflies above soft waters.
Remove the fog and tar pushing me under
And give me back my reason to be
And where is my child inside?
I call – only silence returns to me
I once moved with the day,
Danced in the sun,
Splashed in the refreshing streams
Now I rarely breathe,
Listless and pointless, I won’t even struggle
Hidden away, replaced by the deceiver inside
A cameo of joy, faith and hope,
But inside hollow and silent
Where is the purpose,
The reason to be?
Not here tonight,
Not for who is truly
For without her,
I have ceased to be.
