Because you’ve gone

As I wake up every morning,
When the dawn chorus breaks into song
Reality and grief suddenly hit me
That you are no longer with me my darling
I remember you’ve gone,

As I wake up every morning
When the night has seemed so long
I see the sunshine through the cloud
But my heart suddenly plummets my love
I remember you’ve gone.

As I wake up every morning
Contentment saying this is where I belong
I hear the radio alarm playing our song
The truth suddenly comes and hits me
I remember you’ve gone.

As I wake up every morning
Safely snug and warm in bed
Life is great – whilst my thoughts still sleep
Suddenly they waken to face yet another empty day
I remember you’ve gone.

As I wake up every morning.
To a dark and deep abyss – will it always be like this?
Suddenly I see an indent on the bed
I know then you have been sitting, watching over me
Even though you’ve gone.
