After she is gone and only emptiness and loneliness accost
After she is gone and all the dogs are still upon the floor
That is when her missing presence makes me feel so lost
What is a life without her there by my side?
Without someone in whom I can confide
After she is gone, with all these ghosts I reside
When she has left this place, time becomes ice where I froze
When she has left this place, the stars fade out one by one
When she has left this place, sorrow is a cancer in my heart that grows
When she has left this place, I have looked into the face of the gorgon
What are the hours without her there to complete?
Without her, I fall down in sure defeat
After she has gone, all these ghosts serve to just deplete
