Always beside me, I still hear your voice.
I feel the hands that have never touched.
Ghost of lips, I'll never taste.
I shudder, can you feel it?
Your whispered words, I can still hear them.
Your tears mixed with mine
as we dance to music that never played.
Your heart beats and I feel it.
It echoes in my chest.
Beating a rhythm only I can feel.
I knew it would come.
The day I turned to touch you,
to find the shadow fading away.
Your eyes meet mine, I reach to touch you.
For a fleeting moment I think you will stay.
But as quickly as you came to me, you are gone.
You never belonged to me.
I still have you in my heart.
For every breath I take is laced with our pain.
