My Beloved

I feel as if it were yesterday,
our hearts, beating as one.
The sun is setting on the day.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

I must not rest my eyes.
This nightmare has not won,
I will not believe it’s lies.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

The darkness crawling into the night.
The shadows an evil of their own,
resisting any hope of light.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

Vows promised to never be broken,
words not able to be undone.
My comfort and soul have been taken.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

These walls are closing in.
My dreams no longer letting me run,
to search again and again.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

He will find his way back to me.
He would not leave me all alone.
If only my heart would let me see.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

This night is coming to an end,
the heartache awakened by the dawn.
Wounds reopened, refusing to mend.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

Time proceeds to pass me by.
I still find myself alone,
consumed by despair to continue to try.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

Does he feel my heart still beating,
the rhythm waiting for his return?
Abandoned, wanting, and needing.
Oh, where has my beloved gone?

Maybe he still looks for me.
Wondering where I’ve been,
not knowing that I set him free.
Asking, oh where has my beloved gone?
