It's another dismal day,

With my mind in disarray,

And my heart in full decay,

All because you've gone away.


‘Tis unfortunately clear:

Life is gloom entombed in fear

Of existing without you.

That’s a thought I cannot bear.


Even breathing is a chore,

As I strain to take one more.

Although my chest expands,

It's my heart I can't command.


'Cause you've taken it with you,

Proving absolutely true

Loneliness descends from two.

So, I’ve bid by heart adieu.


I listen every night

To the whispers in the pines,

Even for the smallest sign

That you will again be mine.


But that answer cannot come,

'Cause my soul is out of plumb.

I could drink ‘till no more rum,

I could pray 'till I'm struck dumb,

But the truth is I’m undone.


Yes, my heart has left with you,

And what’s absolutely true

Is that emptiness takes two.

So, I’ve bid my life adieu..
