The ashes of death comfort my soul

Silent words fill the air

Can there be solace in loving you

There is no one there……

You smote me with your promises

They are echos to my soul

I long to feel your touch on my heart

There is no one there….

Bathing in sorrow my tears flow

Tragedy knocks on the door

You realize it’s time to love me

There is no one there….

To leave this life an empty waste

My cries unheard for years

A memory forgotten too late to care

There is no one there.
