If I could only see your face

One more time in the morning light

I'd lay my lips upon your head

And pray that you would be alright

-X-

And if I could only see your face

One more time kindled like the moon

I'd beg you not to go or

Float away like a silver balloon

-X-

When you left I placed your ashes

High up on my plated shroud

There they sat and mocked my pain

Scripted in my brain and hovering like a cloud

-X-

So I sat by my bedroom window

Tracing the dark sky's teardrop chase

As I talk to the night blue air

I only wish to see your face.
