You cannot ease my aching heart
nor pacify my pain ..
Nor can you replace what I have lost
Or bring her back again.
I want you back by my side
to take you by the hand ..
And walk the golden beach
where our toes squish in the sand.
You listened when I needed to talk
you wiped away my tears ..
You shared my worries when they came
and you helped me through my fears.
I want you back to stand by me
to help me as I grow and strive ..
To take your hand and face the world
I wish you back alive.
