How Do I Love Thee Challenge

Now You Are Not Here

1. Chapter One

An age I spent upon my own,
Before the time we met.
And now I am alone once more -
Alone because you left.

Half an age were we together -
Too short a time we had.
And now you are not here with me
I think I'm going mad.

Two centuries I was not scared
For you were by my side.
And now you are not here with me
I want to run and hide.

Your time you gave and your love too,
And children were there three.
But then there came that fateful day,
Now you're not here with me.

I miss you so my wife of old:
I miss your silver hair,
I miss the way you spoke to me,
I turn and you're not there.

My love for you is still strong now
As when we first were wed.
And now you are not here with me
I think my heart is dead.

My only hope is to go west
To see your face once more.
So long you were not here with me
It's you I still adore.
