Floods of tears besiege my bed
Sleepless nights just thinking of you,
Why did it come so soon?
Death itself would have been surprised,
The heart throbs with pain and drips with sorrow
The mind wanders knowing not where to go
The body tosses restlessly and painfully
The river of love flows solemnly on its path
But it creates a division between us
On its bank I stand and cast a wishful eye
I can see your face radiating with life
The world envied our love
The oceans gossiped about our bond
The skies admired us from afar
And the earth whispered silently about us
Why did you cross to the other side?
Why did you leave me in the middle of the journey?
When the arms of love were ready to embrace us
When the world was eager to celebrate us.
My heart throbs with pain unknown
My eyes has run dry with tears
Love smiled at me once and pushed me into the ditch
The cold of the night eats deep and stings
Come back my love, come back to me
My arms are wide open, my heart is desperate
My hands are stretched, ready to hold yours across the river
Ready to hold you tight and close
Ready to love you again, come back my love.
