Empty Place


Without you

There is this emptiness

There where there is no light my love

Deep within my heart and soul

Without you

There is no warm blood

To fill my veins

To warm my heart

Without you

I feel so lonely and cold

There are ants in this empty space

Eating away my dreams

Veil expectations clog my vision

When I am alone so alone my love

As I dream of horizons across the sea
And tears of love as I see the beauty of it all
There is no light in this place

Inside this loneliness there is no sun

Without your presence my love!

Nothing can keep me warm
From every window and door

I have searched for warmth today

And I can see the light of love

Surrounding other people hearts
Even the light God had given us
But without you

While you are so far away my love

Beautiful rays of warm sun shine through 
I dream of those horizons across the ocean

Experiencing moments of loneliness
 Even though you are

Right here with me in spirit day and night
And now itís time to say...I love you!

Itís time to come home

I miss you too much
Dreams are good sometimes

But not this empty place

Without you
