I’ve been haunting
Fading memories
Those distant times,
Still linger there,
For me to see
The well-travelled path,
That led,
From you to me

Can I claim?
That it was meant to be
Ghosts in the mist
They whisper
So seductively
Their moistened breath
As a newborn sea

If you weren't here
I know that I
Would rather be
Anywhere or anyplace
I can no longer see
Among the dying
And the departed
Lost parts of me

A world without love
Or sympathy
No compassion,
No care and no empathy
This is the place
I’d choose to be
If I could not have you here

Along with me
