A feeling of loss and loneliness

I slept alone last night
the bed beside me cold
my lover was the darkness
the shadows that enfold
The moonlight never made it
onto my windowsill
but I thought I heard you whisper
that you did love me still
My heart was slowly bleeding
and inside my tattered mind
I begged for peace and rest
but there were none to find
I remembered when last we parted
My tears escaped my eyes
you wiped them from my cheeks
Your kiss that drowned my cries
Goodbye my love you told me
I remember what you said
I had no choice but leaving you
and now, so lonely is my bed
The darkness shows a kindness
that most of us will not
Within it is my solace
and all the storms I fought
I sleep alone all nights now
no comfort from your heat
no light to wake beside me
no lips for mine to meet
I pull the covers tight, love
I pretend they are your arms
that you gently place around me
to keep me safe from harm
The darkness softly cradles
my empty, hollow form
as the moon sets out the window
I close my eyes and mourn
It's simply just the darkness
I lay in its embrace
Waiting for another chance
To feel your touch upon my face
Beneath the stars this night
the stars I'll never see
'neath them, still I wonder,
if you are also missing me....
