Oh! I miss your spontaneous laughter,
the mischievous, bright glint in your eyes;
everything around you is quiet
just like my heart which silently cries.
I wish you could acknowledge my words
and respond when I gently touch you.
No-one now bothers to kiss away
my tears as they unrelenting flow;
for I fear that you will never wake
and that I would be alone again
in the dark and the frightening nights -
alone with my sorrow and pain.
