I am trying to keep my

Eyes up, above the waves,

But I am a canoe,

Swiftly sinking,

Without you.

I am trying to breathe,

To pull oxygen out of water.

But how do I pull through

Lost and floundering

Without you.

I am trying to speak,

But I have nothing to say.

How can I start anew

Heartless and helpless

Without you.

I try to soar higher,

On wings made out wax.

The sun challenging comforting facts.

I fluttered faintly

Without you.

How do I know I will see you?

Will we ever meet again?

Is there any way to carry you in my heart?

Unknowingly screaming

Forever

Missing you.
