Is a continuous presence in my life
Like a deep cut which never heals
Lying by my side silently in the night
And accompanying me as I go through my day
My silent companion alongside emptiness
Like dark clouds across the sun
But beautiful memories break through...
Shining rays of brightness
Of times and smiles we shared
I wish fate had not been so cruel
As to grab and throw away
the last few minutes we shared
Because there was so much to be said
Of how much I cared.
