7. In Your Absence A vast rift grows within me, As time chips away at my heart.

As the pieces fall and shatter, I'm drowning within my tears. My heart anguished by your absence, My soul dissolved by pain. The distance between us grows bigger, As your absence is felt more and more. If there's anything I’d rather do, That would be, to be with you. I shall abstain from worldly pleasures, And patiently wait for thee, For we are one at heart, I'm your belonging and you belong to me. Sleepless nights of restless hours, I think of devotion and love's power. Realising that it is true, My sweet, I do love you. D.A.REID.
