Without You, I Feel Nothing

Memories of my childhood, I hold onto so dear.

Sleepless nights, I face, the day you became ill,

The pain of losing you forever keeps me sad and awake.

Depressed, I become, every night I see you still,

The memory of your touch, your embrace, I feel my heart ache.

I wish I could hug you, kiss you, heal all your pain.

I would do anything, everything, just to hear your voice.

I wish I could stop the horror coursing through your veins,

If only times were different, if only you had a choice.

Memories of my childhood, I hold onto so dear.

I can still feel the skin of your hand against the skin of mine.

Mother, I miss you, I wish you were here.

You will forever be my Savior, my angel, my divine.

Every night I look for you among the falling stars.

I can no longer face society without fighting back my tears.

I try so hard, but nothing can hide away my scars.

I can never bring you back, but you’ll always be in my prayers.

You told me to never suffer, and now I feel ashamed.

Whatever happened to the days when I was simply just afraid?

It’s time for me to go, just like I came, unnamed.

I took you for granted, my best friend, I betrayed.
