The embers burn low in the fire
Still is the air of the night
Hushed is the voice of it's passage
I miss you -

The rain splashes fast on the trees
Winds fan the lattice moon
Midnight hours chime out the Loon's lonely call
I need you -

I would nestle in silence beside you
So tired of threats and cares
And - For all but your presence, forget -
In the lush of the happiness given
To those who through trusting have grown
In the fullness of love and contentedness -
That I am not alone 
I want you -

I whisper sweet words you taught me
The words that only we have known -
'Till the air of the silent night becomes bitter
I am alone
I call to you -

I miss you -
Oh, how I miss you!
