About one who has given up on finding love, romance, passion, desire, etc.
I am tired of this empty love
which wretches at my heart.
I am tired of this loneliness
that sorrow keeps apart.
Nightly dreams torment me so
saying love is here,
but morning brings none of the things
that once I held so dear.
I am again for what its worth,
awakened with the day.
Only to breathe a mournful sigh,
with grief thatís here to stay.
I am not what I appear to be
a cold and hardened soul,
but merely a saddened one
lost without a goal.
I step aside and let dreams go
knowing theyíll not be mine.
For I cannot have what I want to have
even with the passage of time.
So Iíll let love go and the passion too
knowing all the while,
that this empty love has become my fate
And I'll embrace it with a smile.†
