The heart within aches for you
but you are not here to soothe it's pain.
These bleary eyes cry for you
but you are not here to wipe away the tears.
This soul shines for you
but you are not here to see its light.
These arms long for you
but you are not here to give them something to hang onto.
These hands come together in prayer for you
but you are not here to know my good will.
My hope dwindles for you
because you are not here to give it strength.
My life lives for you
but you are not here to give it meaning.
My love searches for you
because you are not here to give it peace.
