Faintly, your form perseveres,

A slight echo still persists,

Your shadow cast dissappears,

But a piece of you resists.

Still I go on pretending,

That one day you will return,

What we had was unending,

And not yours alone to-spurn.

Lies I cling to desperately,

And even more so lately,

Pleas to God for clemency,

Fall on deaf ears so faintly.
