Do Not Go

Like a ghost haunting my heart
You stand there just beyond my reach
Heart-wrenching close
And yet impossibly far away

And I hear my heart crying out:
Don’t go, please don’t leave me here alone.

Images of you as you were
When you loved me most
Longing to be held by you
But embraced by emptiness instead

Don’t go, please don’t leave me here alone

Truth holds no freedom for me
Only thousands of unanswered questions
Aching to be answered
And dangerous if asked

Don’t go, please don’t leave me here alone

Why won’t you stay here with me?
Maybe just for a while
You could stay by my side
In this world of nightmares and dreams

Don’t go, please don’t leave me here alone

Please don’t wake me from the dreams
Of you standing there
If I have to wake to find you have gone
And yet again feel my heart laid bare

Don’t go, please don’t leave me here alone

When you go I am left feeling utterly abandoned
Standing in the wake of your pain
Trying desperately to remember how to breathe again
As the tears stream down my face
And my heart cries out:

Don’t go, please don’t leave me here alone
