Please tell me why
all beautiful things
have come to die?
I remember us,
The way we used to be.
You were my everything.
You were the other part of me.
I see the birds have taken flight
It's getting late.
It will be cold tonight.
Let me know when you'll arrive.
I see your picture on the wall.
Back in happy days.
A smile could say a thousand words.
But now it says nothing at all.
I close my eyes.
An ill wind blows and I shiver.
Forgotten are the petty lies.
I wish we could start over again.
It's true what they say,
You don't know what you had until it's gone.
And I held your hand
when you whispered you couldn't go on.
