Dark clouds hover to shed rain,

Furious winds blow,

I wish my beloved was here.

I wonder if I will snap,

Out of the grand past,

Or follow her to the grave.

Daphne: my innocent one,

Keeps haunting my life,

Even though the years have passed.

I miss her presence badly,

Her expressive eyes,

And her endearing laughter.

Time keeps playing its strange tricks,

The mind does not quit,

As all the gone moments shine...

O my dearest loving God,

You do see my pain,

While my beloved is with you.

The soul that loved me so much,

Is in Eden now,

While I wish that she were here...

It will soon rain heavily,

As the night prolongs,

And I will relive the past.

Love can be so wonderful,

But barbs of parting,

Can turn heaven into hell.

My hurt, lonely, grieving heart,

Will keep on pining,

For Daphne -- she IS my life.
