A Heart’s Lament

In the still of the night,
When the world is fast asleep,
My thoughts wander to you,
And memories I want to keep.

You were the light of my life,
The one who made everything bright,
But now you’re gone,
And I’m lost in the dark of night.

I miss the sound of your laughter,
The way you used to hold my hand,
The feel of your embrace,
The memories I can’t understand.

I close my eyes and I see you,
In every dream and every thought,
But when I open them again,
You’re still not here, and I’ve been brought

Back to reality, where you’re not by my side,
Where I’m left with just the emptiness inside,
It’s a pain that never goes away,
A wound that never heals, and I pray

For the day when I’ll see you again,
When we’ll reunite and never part,
Till then, my love, I’ll keep you close,
In my heart, where you’ll always have a part.

I know that you’re watching over me,
And I’ll always feel you near,
But until we meet again,
This heart of mine will shed a tear.

So, I’ll keep holding on to the memories,
Of the laughter and love we shared,
And I’ll keep you close in my heart,
Until we’re together again, and our love is repaired.

Echoes of You

In the silence of my soul,
I hear the echoes of you,
A voice that once was whole,
Now distant, yet still true.

The laughter that we shared,
The moments that were bright,
Are now a memory bared,
In the stillness of the night.

Your touch, once warm and real,
Is now just a memory,
A comfort that I still feel,
In the moments of agony.

The love that we once knew,
Is still alive in my heart,
A flame that will always burn,
Though we’re apart.

Your absence leaves a void,
That cannot be filled,
A pain that I can’t avoid,
In every thought, every will.

But still I hold on tight,
To the memories that we made,
And I find comfort in the night,
With the echoes of you that never fade.

For though we’re far apart,
Our love will never die,
It will always have a part,
In the rhythm of my sighs.

So I’ll cherish every thought,
Of the time that we had,
And keep your memory in my heart,
Where you’ll always be, my love, forever glad.

Longing for You

In the stillness of my mind,
I think of you and I find,
A longing that I cannot hide,
For the one I loved, who once was mine.

The laughter that we shared,
The love that we once knew,
Is now just a memory bared,
In the emptiness that I must go through.

Your smile, once so warm and bright,
Is now just a distant light,
A reminder of a happier time,
When you were here and everything was right.

The sound of your voice,
The touch of your hand,
Is now just a distant noise,
In a world that feels so bland.

But still I hold on tight,
To the love that we once had,
And I find solace in the night,
With memories that make me glad.

For though you’re not here with me,
Your love still shines like the stars,
A guiding light for me to see,
Through the darkness that surrounds my scars.

So I’ll keep you close in my heart,
And cherish every memory,
And I’ll wait for the day to start,
When we’ll be together, finally free.

An Unfulfilled Promise

In the stillness of my days,
I think of you in so many ways,
Of the laughter that once filled the air,
And the love that we used to share.

Your touch, once so warm and true,
Is now just a distant memory,
A comfort that I still pursue,
In the moments of my agony.

The sound of your voice, so sweet and clear,
Is now just a whisper in my ear,
A reminder of a time so dear,
When you were here and everything was near.

The promise we made to never part,
Is now an unfulfilled promise in my heart,
A wound that never seems to heal,
A pain that I can never conceal.

But still I hold on tight,
To the memories that we once made,
And I find peace in the night,
With the thought of you by my side, never to fade.

For though you’re not here with me,
Your love still shines like the sun,
A guiding light for me to see,
Through the darkness, until we’re together, as one.

So I’ll keep you close in my heart,
And cherish every memory,
And I’ll wait for the day to start,
When we’ll be reunited, finally free.

A Lonely Heart

In the quiet of my soul,
I feel a love that’s lost its hold,
A heart that’s missing you,
And memories that once were true.

The laughter that we shared,
The love that we once knew,
Is now just a memory bared,
In the loneliness that I must go through.

Your smile, once so warm and bright,
Is now just a faded light,
A reminder of a time so right,
When you were here and everything was in sight.

The sound of your voice, so sweet and clear,
Is now just an echo in my ear,
A longing for a time that’s near,
When you were here and everything was sincere.

The pain of losing you,
Is like a wound that never heals,
A loneliness that I can’t undo,
And the emptiness that it reveals.

But still I hold on tight,
To the love that we once had,
And I find solace in the night,
With the thought of you and the memories we shared.

For though you’re not here with me,
Your love still shines like the stars,
A guiding light for me to see,
Through the darkness and the lonely scars.

So I’ll keep you close in my heart,
And cherish every memory,
And I’ll wait for the day to start,
When we’ll be together, forever, finally free.
