"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the lights."

You disappeared without me in the dark.
You’re there one second,
Gone the next;
Leaving me here without your presence.
The good days we spent were full of light,
Now they have turned to complete darkness.
I found my way to your grave.
I began to pray in the cold silence,
That one day we would see each other again;
But for now the tears came running,
Down my face falling on the cold stone.
The blue day turned into night,
The moon taking place of the sun.
I realized you were never coming back;
My heart ripped out of my chest.
Wishing for one more day with you,
I knew it would never happen.
The scars you left will never fade;
They’re just reminders of the past.
I’m at the point of breaking,
And you left me here abandoned.
