Greet me once more


The light of my life is gone
A lacklustre world eclipsed
By that cold shadow of loss
I manufacture anew
A strange unknown loneliness 
Oh! what hard hike up those stairs
To a cold empty bedroom
In which once there was laughter
Your side of the bed now bare
A company of silence
Shot through like an express train
From a dark empty platform
Where is your pretty smile
And warmth of companionship?
My throat is dry choked with grief
And eyes are wet with sorrow
When will I see you again?
A thousand years would be fine
Knowing you cheeky laughter
Would greet me once more
To honor my side, my love
