I once could call you mine and loved you
But you went into the endlessness of the night
As though seeking refuge from a storm.
I miss you with each beat of my sad heart.
Come back to me, I pray.
With words of love renewed and hope profound,
Tell me that you are mine once again.
I promise to be loving with each spin of the earth.
Or if you cannot return,
Please show me that you’ve found joy
In each and everything you do
And I’ll no longer be filled with enduring regret.
For I love you more than all I know
More than my own residing happiness
I’ll find peace and more in your success
Of all you seek in love’s eternal and abiding flame.
For I love you more than life itself
Despite your absence from my life
Your joy will be my life survived,
My motivation, and all that I seek.
Our lives were star-crossed and doomed
Yet I would give it all for a mere glimpse
Of all that I knew with you
For its worth exceeds the loss.
