A mid-December day.
On a cold and grey, mid-December day,
Suddenly, you left me all alone,
Far from anywhere and anyone,
Desperately I tried to reach you on the phone.
You disappeared that night from my life,
I did not know where you had gone,
My thoughts were for you and how you felt,
But thoughts for me - you had none.
I tried to find you. I wanted to hear your voice,
But no discussion. No word.
No help or comfort from any quarter,
I felt that no one cared.
Worried and concerned I waited…
That night it snowed heavily,
I thought of you, and us. I missed you so,
As the flakes fell silently.
Next morning the sky looked threatening,
The snow and ice lay thick upon the ground,
All day I waited, hoped and prayed,
I had not lost the love I’d found.
That day was cold and lonely,
There was little I could do,
The ‘shortest day’ was the longest day,
All I could think about was you.
What had I done that was so bad,
To deserve what you did to me,
You left me in a shattered state,
Our future together now a memory.
After all we had shared this was not fair,
The pain still lingers to this day,
To leave me all alone, so far from home,
On a cold and grey, mid-December day.
