It's dark and quiet


I wake from my sleep
It's dark and quiet
I reach out, but you are not there

Then I remember 
You've left me alone
You have gone and I know not where

Seven years now passed
And you fought so hard
Once your body had not one hair

You tried everything
Pills, transplants and all
Daitly injections with no care

Then you said goodbye
The final bell was rung
You closed your eyes you were not there

Now I wake each night
You disturb my sleep
To say you love me still, I swear

I wake from my sleep
It's dark and quiet
I reach out, but you are not there
