A wall of chill and bleak desire
are all that's left me now.
But wait, I feel you in me here
within my heart somehow.
This feeling deep inside my soul
is more than I can bear.
The loss of you just took me down
a dark and twisted stair.
As I tread water in my life
to keep from going under
those precious pieces of your heart
are a litany of wonder.
Now velvet breath upon my cheek
from heaven's grace above
does speak to me and lets me know
I never lost your love.
