The sun, it rises colorless,
To start cold passing day,
And I walk on in dark distress,
For fate did part our ways.
Cloaked in twilight's somber shade,
I pace with moans and sighs.
Sweet reveries all seem to fade,
Like color from the skies.
Darkness falls without a star,
And I feel close to breaking.
In deep cold night I've come this far,
Though my heart is wracked with aching.
I stagger on in ceaseless pain,
Breathless hope still leads me through.
Hope that our paths will cross again,
And bring me back to you.
