The morning goes
The mirror shows
An older face
In wrinkled woes

An empty space
Behind those eyes
A memory’s place
Where she resides

Forever more
Life subsides
For a Heaven once found
in her eyes.

A spackled edge
Of scattered tears
Memories remain
Of shattered years

Death shall beckon
As my only chance
To find her again
In eternity’s dance.

Wait my dear
I shant be long
We’ll soon be near
Where love belongs.

Good bye for now
My true heart
Absence makes no man
This life to part.

And I shall love you
the land and seas
Come apart.
