Loss (I Find Myself Adrift)


My love

The mystery of you defeats me

I can never really see

Into your endless, swirling depths

I swim in your dreams, in eerie silence

I have drunk of sorrow

Of tears and futility

But cannot quench my thirsty soul

I used to know each tiny crease

On your beloved face

But now I find myself adrift

Alone, in the mirror’s frame

Resident of the void

In the very air you breathe

But if you remember my love

You will awake once more, with me

And we shall have eternity
