You left me alone
In tears and pain
Without parting hugs
No final goodbye
With swollen eyes
I kept waiting
For days and days
But you never came

No I don’t wait anymore
For I know, those who
Leave in silence
Never return

But still my heart aches
Not for you, but for
The memories we had
And still I whisper
Your name like a spell
For you have left
But your name stayed
Deeply buried and printed
On my heart’s slate..
