Lost I was in your eyes, The day that we first met, Your smile I'll ne'er forget, Which made my love for you stretch to the skies. In my world filled with darkness, you made the sun rise, I forgot my worries, And found warmth in your soft embrace. You gave me days Filled with calm and peace, Within my heart, You held a special place, We were always together, ne'er apart. Alas! I failed to see The face that your mask hid, To me one day you bid 'Goodbye', leaving me in melancholy. You chose to ignore many an impassioned plea, And left this poor, young lass All alone in an empty space. You used your ways, Crept in the crevasse  Inside my heart, Where you had held a place; We were once together, now we're apart.   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
