How I Miss You

I miss you 
With every longing breath
That pants in sweet silence.
With every insatiable spark 
that ignites my being
And with infinite tears of all my life
That glides down the empty spaces
Of my mournful soul.

For each lifeless day 
Seems like a thousand years
Of wondering hopelessly
On this cruel world
Without your tender kiss
That thaws the frost within my heart.

As the winds hold the last
Sweet myrrh of your lingering scent
That sates not this deep hunger
Crawling in my bones for you
Amongst the fragrant scarf
Of tomorrow's promise 
That you left behind
Imprinted indelibly
On the script of my heart. 

Each star becomes a diamond
Leading to your eyes
Each lilac wave draws a melody 
That inks my heart
With a memory of your love.
Life and breath has lost its meaning
Days are the footsteps to eternal silence
That invades me in shivers of night.
Amongst the mist of mortal pain
I've made my grave of sorrows
On every flowering field
That reminds me of your absent smile
Dawning warmly in my eyes
With a sweet descent 
That only heaven makes.

I cast a thousand tears 
In a silver bottle
On the wavering seas
That it would find you
Because I die! I die! I die!
In your absence
Because my dear beloved
I miss you....
