Long lost whisper

Like a whisper in the wind,
You were there, then gone again...
I looked up and saw your face,
Reached out, but was to late...

I blinked and you turned around,
I cried out without a sound...
A name that was not heard,
For a love that never cured...

I hit my knees, shed a tear,
Cursed the Gods that I held dear...
tempted fate to take me away,
To a land that I couldn't say...

I held you close, I bet it all,
You left me there and let me fall...
My heart, my mind, and soul were your's,
Now you've gona and I'm no more...

I live my life as if a dream,
can't believe the things I've seen...
You came in like a tidal wave,
Stole my heart and took it away...

Well I'm still here at the bottom of the sea,
Right here were you left me...
As I wait for someone to come along,
'till then I guess I'll just look on...

My heart's still out there,
Floating through the empty air...
Maybe someday it'll come back home,
In the hands of someone who won't leave it alone...

Like a whisper in the wind,
You were there, then gone again...
I looked up and saw your face,
Reached out, but was to late...

You stole my heart,
You hid it away...
Told me it was far,
But never would you say...

Standing there, crying empty tears,
I'm hollow inside now I fear...
I'm empty and so cold,
And yet I still love you so...

Well I was flyin' high,
My heart was beatin' fast,
I thought I'd survive,
Knew it wouldn't last...

Now it's beating slow,
I think it's time to go...
I'm fallin' down,
Then I hit the ground...

I look up and see the stars,
And I wonder where you really are...
And what you've done with my dead heart...

I get up and walk to the sea,
I hope and pray you'll come back to me...
I ask my God if I survived,
Or if I finally have died...

I look around, but I'm alone,
I ask my heart, but no ones home...
It's still lost out there,
Far, far away somewhere...

Beating softer as time ticks away,
Living for just another day...
Waiting for you to come along,
But praying that I'll just move on...

Thank you, please feel free to speak your mind. This is the first poem I have written in a long while, so I would love any thoughts anyone has on it.
