My life still lies in shambles,
My heart seems to be broken...
The words that I still yearn to hear,
Are absent and unspoken.
 
I wish that I could sweep them up,
Each tiny bit and piece...
Put them together just once more,
Our time was far too brief.
 
Too often now,  when I wake up,
Bits and pieces seem to haunt me...
With echoes from an era gone,
Take pleasure as they taunt me.
 
The pain not quite as great now,
As time works hard to heal...
Yet bits and pieces emphasize,
The sadness I still feel.
