Peace Without You

Sunlight sets the sky afire.
And my heart burns with it.
Evening stills the world, kissing the stars.
And my heart stills, as well.
The breeze carries the scent of blossoms.
And carried your memory to me.
The skies will weep raindrops that soak the earth.
And I will weep too, soaking my soul in grief.
Then as the sun comes and goes.
And you do not come home.
Then as the moon lights starless night skies.
And you no longer light my darkness.
Then the future will find us.
And I will have found peace without you.
