Eternal Separation

I know you're still alive:
I feel it in my heart.
And yet each day I'm losing
The race right from the start.

I'm hoping for a future:
I know that it will come.
And yet it's dark and cold
And I still can't see the sun.

You told me we would meet:
You said it wouldn't be long.
And yet I'm waiting, years on.
Don't tell me you were wrong.

I look each night to your stars:
The names you taught me.
And yet I can't see you there,
But why, why can't I see? 

The End
