Before him there was nothing.

All was dark and silent

And I lived always alone.

I knew not the true peace

Which comes of being loved.

Before him

I was alone.

When I saw him

All began to glow.

And in the silence of my life

I heard a choir sing.

In the blindness of it all

I saw a light begin.

Before him

I was alone.

But now

After he has gone

All that light and sound has gone.

And in the silence and the dark

The pain rules all.

Before him there was nothing.

With him all was there.

And now that he is gone

I wish I weren't here.
