Don't Leave Me Here


I don't get out much now that you're gone
But I still feel so close to you;
Yesterday, the waiter at the restaurant said
'Good evening, Ma'am, table for two? '

I looked around, but I saw no one else,
Was your spirit standing there?
Then I caught a whiff of your cologne
Floating lightly on the air

Is this the reason I feel close to you,
Have you found your way back to me?
Were you allowed to remove the veil
Between us and eternity?

I miss you so much, I can't let go,
I'm chained to your memory;
And the chains get heavier every day,
But I wear them willingly

Yet, how much pain do I have to bear?
What is life without you, anyway?
Restless days become lonely nights,
And lonely nights turn back into day

There's nothing to keep me here anymore,
Help me find my way to you;
Lift the veil and reach out to me,
Take my hand and guide me through!

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
