Lost Loves

Life sounds so lonely right now
The air is empty
and the space beside me is cold

Where did the warm air go?
The air so full of breath
so filled with laughter?

Why does it sound hollow?
The sound of laughter is gone
and I long to hear the crashing of waves

There is no music in the air
If only to hear a guitar strumming
filling the summer's night sky with life

To hear the sound of laughter!
The sound of dancing feet
To the song of life, and clapping hands

To feel the sand between my toes
and to feel the warmth of bodies all round
as their laughter makes the stars twinkle brighter

How I miss the stars in the sky
and the sand on which we laid,
and the loves with whom I could gaze

How I miss the breeze
and the arms around me
that kept me warm

How I miss those friends
who would play their songs
while I danced under nights blanket

The night has been long
but my heart hurts no more,
for I see the dawn breaking....
