Shadow Lover

You there, in the shadows
Yes, memory in shrouds
There for but a moment
Then swept away like clouds

You are my only lover
For the man you were is gone
You chill me with your presence
And haunt me with your song

You are embodied emptiness
And cling to me at night
And mock me from every shadow
As I move through the light

There at every corner
And even in my dreams
And every where I go
You follow me it seems

The days are slipping past
I'm slowly losing track
So tell me; If I can't forget
Why can't I bring you back?
