She is gone



How can your body breathe without a soul,
Keeping your heart beats when it's hurt,
When you are losing your love and it's beyond your control,
The one you never thought you'd ever be apart.

How can you live in a world without a sun,
Awaiting each night turns to day,
When you feel that your world is done,
and you are broken wanting her to stay.

How can you sleep full of hopes and fears:
Knowing she's going to a happy place,
When you know you won't see her for years,
and willing to die just to touch her face.

Just tell me, how can you get over all this pain,
Hoping that time would help to cure,
When it's really driving you insane,
Such sadness noone can endure.
