Like yesterday, you've come and gone from my life
perhaps never to return.
Only a memory of you remains in my broken heart,
an experience to learn.
I'll spurn these memories
for it hurts to know you're gone.
The sun has set on me, and my nightfall prevails
for loneliness has won.
My heart cries out
but the echo is bound by distance.
Only the wind answers
with a howl and a resistance.
