A Thousand Days Without You

With a lump in my throat
and tears in my eyes,
I take a deep breath
and sadly surmise:
a thousand days,
a thousand nights
I have been standing
here without you.

I can swallow my pride
and dry off my tears,
but who can bring back
all of those years?

There is nothing to soothe
this aching inside,
but to hold Hope’s hand
in this ebbing tide
of a thousand days,
a thousand nights
standing alone
without you.

But who’s to say
just what is wrong
and what is right?
I’m still without you!

With a lump in my throat
and tears in my eyes,
I take a deep breath
and realize…
I’m still standing
here without you.
