Murray, UT, USA
Something inside of me vanished, today;
With sorrow, I watched it depart.
My eyes brimmed with teardrops; a lump filled my throat,
And darkness crept into my heart.
Something I needed has now disappeared;
And, with it, my will to go on.
It seems to have flown to a far-distant star:
The one that I once wished upon.
Something that guided my steps now is gone;
And, I'm empty, like never before.
Despair and dark anguish encompass my soul;
For, my power to dream is, no more.
