Lashes Tethered With Tears - Constanza form

From life you chose to disappear
Yielding to waves that lured you in 
Never knowing what could have been

Each day I'm haunted by grim fear
Anguished by the most dreadful thought ~
What had I done to break your heart

My lashes tether to each tear
When the sun slips into the sea
I cry,  wishing it could be me

I miss you so, my love, my dear
I ache day and night,  all alone
My fate,  a visage I bemoan

Oh, how I yearn to hold you near
Like the sun, I shall slink away
to rest in your arms 'neath the bay

From life you chose to disappear
Each day I'm haunted by grim fear
My lashes tether to each tear
I miss you so, my love, my dear
Oh how I yearn to hold you near
