Broken Heart

© 2005 Ree Tjeerdsma

I walk this lonely sundown path
With memories of you
The man you used to be
The man who cared for me
I walk alone because I can't have you

Your laugh
My guide through rocky ground
Your smile
My vibrant light
Your warmth
My succor in this chill
And friendless moonless night

I sob this shaky shadowed stream
From memories of you
The man who brimmed with glee
The man I loved to see
I weep alone because you are not you

Your laugh
Has died within your throat
Your smile
Has flown away
Your cold demeanor shuts me out
Blots out the light of day

I grieve through dawn for who you were
For memories of you
The man whose heart is cold
The man I never told
I walk alone because I can't have you
