I long to find a serum for my soul
To ease the tearing pain
I've come to know.
A potion that would ease my troubled head
and take away the thoughts
I truly dread.
A tonic to erase my memory
of strength and grace which
haunt me constantly.
An elixir to stop my bleeding heart
Would that I never found you
from the start.
I long to find a path that leads to you.
The road before laden with
Were I to find a drug or find my way
I'd take you in my arms and seize the day
And take a thousand pictures with my eyes;
Collateral against tearful goodbyes.
