I lie in the darkness
Memories drift through the fog of this life
A single tear rolls down my cheek

In a moment, my eyes are wet with regret
Where did it go wrong
And where did it go right

So many desires unfulfilled
The emptiness inside me
The emptiness of my heart

The night air is so quiet
The whispers inside my head
The whispers that never leave me

Haunted by my failures
Haunted by my weaknesses
I hide in the shadows

The loneliness of this life
The emptiness of loss
The weight of my grief

I force myself to remember
To feel the pain
To hear the cry of my heart

How much strength must I have
