My heart is crying,
My eyes are dry.
Silently weeping,
Wondering why.
Why you're not here,
And why we're apart.
Why my body is so warm,
But what's cold is my heart.
Why life is so cruel,
And it's so hard to stand still.
Why it never stops changing,
Why it never will.
Why I can't cry into your shoulder,
And breathe in your sweet smell.
Why I can't listen to your voice,
Or have a secret to tell.
Why I can't poke all your freckles,
Or kiss you in the rain.
Why when nighttime is over,
I'll still feel this pain.
Why the sand may be soft,
But your skin feels much better.
Why the warmth of the sun,
Is nothing to the tone of your letter.
And so I wonder where you are,
Perhaps lying in bed.
Maybe you're missing me too,
Or I'm just lonely instead.
Maybe you're aching,
As I'm aching over you too.
But even if not,
Remember I love you.
