I’ve lost you, now what do I do?
I feel so empty without you.
E’en though you are right by my side,
and always be my blushing bride,
you’re slowly slipping far away.
I hold your hand and beg you stay.

Another man? That’s not the case,
there’s something else that takes my place.
A malady that takes your mind,
then plays with it, leaves it behind.
Your mind now plays sad tricks on you –
and you’re not sure what is not true.

Most times you are aware, but then –
sometimes you drift away again,
to places only seen by you.
Come back to me, I’ll lead you through.
Return my love, I beg you stay …
just be with me for one more day.

I love to read and swim, even more I love to write poetry. I love challenges and I write to let people know they are not alone in this world they travel in. God is a big part of my life and has been since the day He stopped me from trying to end it.
