Lite – I Wish You Were Here

If you were here today
You'd see my happy face
The one I have to put on,
My sadness not a trace.
I laugh,
I smile,
Pretend
For a while
Content, I appear.

I wish you were here!

Now I'm feeling lonely
I need a hand to hold,
I need some pleasant company
For loneliness is cold.
I shiver,
I shake,
Denying
Heartache,
For it is clear....

I wish you were here!

Today I am paralysed,
Riddled with fright,
I could do with some back-up
To cope with this plight.
Struggling,
Praying,
Temper
Fraying.
I'm fighting with fear.

I wish you were here!

I'm drowning in grief,
In so great a sadness.
Please give some release
To what's total madness.
Raging,
Crying,
Inside
Dying,
You'd dry my tears.

I wish you were here!

So I'm living on empty,
Life's null and void,
It's become one big struggle
I try to avoid.
Hiding,
Miserable,
Fading,
Invisible,
Needing some cheer.

But one thing is clear,
I wish you were here!
