Even the ashes of lovers find no rest.
Even the ashes of lovers find no rest

I long for your embrace and feel your touch upon my skin

As I wrap my arms about myself

It seems like only yesterday that we were holding hands

I wake in a cold sweat

My heart racing so hard that I can hardly breathe

I search for you, but you are out of arms length

I look upon the mantel piece

With tears streaming down my face

I feel you beckoning me as if you are in the room

Forever feeling your love
