cold comfort


I woke up everyday singing your name,
longing once more to touch your mane,
to hold you close to my heart,
and tell you secrets from the heart,

you are always on my mind,
all I see is you maybe am blind,
I love you but I cant fathom the feeling,
and not having you is my worst feeling,

you are like a disease for which there was no cure,
You made my sudden fall from grace or,
am too feeble in mind to give you comfort,
and all I could offer is cold comfort,

am lying here with my heart on my sleeves,
alone like the most dangerous hill,
I lost you when we could have been together,
I loved the woman who is gone forever,

I could not put the blame on someone else but me,
the one who broke your heart is no one but me,
I could not blame our chosen destiny,
or the success of our enemy,

all I ever offered was cold comfort,
I killed your heart in the name of comfort,
but we could never live in bliss,
cause always tis you i'll miss.
