Dirt (repost)

 
I try to fathom what my mind cannot
Just weeks ago you were there
And after a last breath, your soul vanished
Exhale and faded into thin air

Miles from your bedside
And yet as close as the heart
I had to let you go involuntarily
It is tearing me apart

Your body returns to ashes
And all that is left is dirt
Trying to hold on to a sunnier disposition
Yet I can't help but feel the hurt

Just telling it like it is
Straight out and confessing the shaking
When every day without you is a fresh sense of loss
Everyday my heart is breaking

My mind crowded
Yet empty it seems
I fall asleep in search of you
But I cannot see you in my dreams...
