Gasping, clinging desperately,

To the parts you left behind,

To life grasping jealously,

Love and hope have been denied.

Still I dream of reunion,

In your warm lap I awake,

But it’s just an illusion,

Faded away by daybreak.

Why am I still existing?

Some shred of hope still clasping,

On dreams of love subsisting,

I go on dying, gasping.
