On this June day, he went away,
That was some years ago
Each dawn was like torture,
The anguish. the slaughter
No connection with anyone near
He gave a last smile,I did not cry,
My heart took the weight of the blow
The time goes so slowly,
We can’t control it
Stunned by the sorrow,the flow
How will you manage, he whispered,
Will you be able to steer?
I could not think past it,
His death would be drastic
My aim was to help him let go
Yet time also races,
We must not waste it
We’re here for a short time, who knows?
One day runs to the next day
My heart aches so violently
I hold it here gently
Why oh love why aren’t you here?
I called after three weeks
I can’t go on like this
Won’t you come back,why’d ye go?
I had no answer, the demons entranced me
They tightened me up with their gears
Like the rack and the flaying
Skin torn and bleeding
Yet we’re not meant to let feeling show
