I touch your skin and it warms my heart,
I caress your lips and see them part.
I hear your laugh and my knees go weak,
You hold me tight and I just listen to you speak.
I watch you sleep and feel you there,
You gave me your all but I was happy to share.
I woke with a smile but it soon changed to tears,
When I realise my deepest and greatest desires and fears.
No one was there and reality came into the light,
I tried to convince myself to continue the fight.
But I cowered in the corner clutching my chest,
Is this what I have to look forward to, was this really the best?
The days pass by me feeling empty and cold,
I don't even cry anymore at the stories they told.
The sun is high, bright in the blue sky,
And every so often a tear still escapes my eye.
When I remember the feelings I had that night,
I still have to clutch at my chest and hide out of sight.
I cry alone in the dark it's better that way,
There is obviously still a Piper to Pay.
Forlorn in the dark I hold onto that dream,
The sun, the field, the flowers the stream.
The light on your face and the smell on the air,
It's still more than I would ever dare.
