The lightning shook the mountain outside;
I huddled in your arms, fear spreading wide;
“Don’t worry, dear, you’ll be all right,
There’s no need to get a fright;
I am here, and forever I stay,”
Your words soothe me, my fears allay;
Your reassuring smile, your dazzling countenance,
Cause my heart to flutter and dance;
I gaze into your cerulean blue eyes,
Never wanting to say my goodbyes,
To this wonderful being, so perfect and bold;
You are more precious to me than gold.
But now, the time flees,
I wish it could freeze;
My time with you has fallen away;
The flowers droop of your bouquet:
You have broken free, and so has the time;
Why? It was done in clandestine,
The treachery and secrets, tearing at my heart;
Our moments were sweet, but this is tart;
I fall into a mist of gloom,
You have left me, love, before I could bloom.
Alas, now I weep;
But your locket I still keep.
It is my only haven
For those memories afar: you are forgiven.
The fierce winds howl, biting;
I try to keep fighting,
But you have left me: my life and my blood;
I want to die now, maybe in a flood
Of tears of sorrow, grief and despair,
I am beyond repair
My love, adieu.
