Before You’re Gone

Pack me in your heart
Before you’re gone
Let us share one last breath together
Let me behold you and caress you
Let me make enough warm memories
To stay alive for the coming lonely nights
Let me believe one last time
In the beauty of life
You by my side in this cold winter night

While you’re gone
I shall not look back or forward
I shall wrap my hopes and lock them in the closet
Only once you’re back
I shall believe in tomorrows

When you re-arrive
My heart shall be frozen in this time
When you return,
Bring back some sun and unfreeze my heart
Unfreeze my thoughts and unfreeze my hopes
No matter what season you land
My heart will be parked in the same winter night
