One more day without you.
I'll add it to the years,
a heart that still bleeds tears.
A choice you made within our time,
I was not to be the one.
My heart passed through the closing door,
soul left behind, looking for the Sun.
I lost my slice of heaven,
tried to take the long way home.
Your name embroidered upon a sighing
made it impossible to roam.
Trapped within a burning need and wanting
Encumbered by a crying soul for the only love I knew.
I had to step out of the darkness
and find another place to dwell.
Picked another flower to pin on my lapel.
And though its scent spelled happiness,
a promise warm and new.
I find my mind in that long ago place,
my heart still loving you..
