I am finding it difficult to breathe, at best...
The loneliness has now set in,
as I already knew it would.
Consuming my every moment,
in ways I didn't think it could.

You tell me I should stay busy,
It will help the time to pass.
Doing so, only makes me dizzy,
I prefer to embrace the past.

Gazing into your eyes of green,
the moments too quickly flew.
Now all I have is time to dream,
awaiting the day I come back to you.

I can't see the stars in this city of lights.
I can't see the trees in this land of concrete.
I hold in my heart those memorable nights.
When in your arms, I felt so complete.

This city's so big, there's so much to do,
but, I merely go to work, put in my time.
I now feel so lost in this city I knew,
and I can't shake your eyes from my mind.
