Absent Heart



I whisper your name to an empty space
In the dead of night when no-one hears
Images of you rip through my dreams
And I reach for the touch that’s returned no more
I look for your smile in our favourite place
Whenever I wander these halls of sorrow
The lilt of your voice drifts in a chorus of noise
And I dream of the eyes that smile back no more
I search in the dark for a glimpse of your face
Fountains of mist flood through my eyes
Tears drowning memories of a life once loved
And I yearn for the heart that loves no more
