Sat here drinking coffee just passing the time of day for I live from day to day now for alone there's no need to make any plans
And there's no place I need to be for no longer dose my wife call my name I miss
so much hearing her
voice
It a year that has passed since she departed from life oh God how I miss her so each and every
day
For she was my world and all that was In It to all I needed In life for.when I first met my sweetheart It was she who gave me a life
Before we met I was a loner had never been loved In my life but my wife to be saw something In me that no others could see
And I never looked back In the twenty years she was my sweetheart all that
time spent
together
But life was cruel when It took her far to early In life and stole from me all I had In life that of my beautiful
wife
I miss so much hearing her voice twenty years Is a long time together but she was stolen from me to early In life
The Last few days felt so strange
shut myself away from the outside
world just didn't want to see just
couldnt face these past few
days

So I wrapped a blanket of dreams
around me and there I stayed for
five days and nights drifting from
dream to dream

Happy to just stay wrapped
up In my dreams of yesterday deep
In thoughts of one time sweetheart
Helen been passed a year
now

And I've lost her but I'm still asking
why was she taken from me far to
early In life far to young to die that
the way It felt she was stolen from
me
Helen always feel this cruel jealous world stole Held her from me because can't stand people being happy

I simply want to love without regrets
I simply want an honest relationship
And yet even with everything I give
I still get treated like a greedy kid

I love in the darkness, kept from all the pain
Yet I remain oblivious to who she really is
She stole my heart and took it with her
Yet here I am, left blinded and without her

I am tired..
I am broken..
I am hurt..
I am set aside..

Yet why do I still cling on
To broken dreams?
Why do I still hope for
The best reality?

She's lost
I want to stay here
I want to be the beacon
Yet she strays from me

I simply want to be with her
And yet her eyes look elsewhere
She shuns me away
I've been feeling tired

Goodnight dearest Hera
I pray for your bright tomorrow
Let me slumber for a while
And when tomorrow comes, please give back the heart you stole.
Pouring out these emotions

Goodnight

-J

The ocean moves
stirring the water.
But none see the sunshine
behind the full moon in bloom
that steals the starry night.

Always slept with one eye opened when I'm sleeping
In case Helen should require my attention for I would tend her every need through my love for her I'd always be there
24/7 In case she should ever need me all she had to
  do
was simply call my name
call my name and I'd be right there with her for that's what true really was to me
I'm so lost now she's no longer here with me for some reason It was decided out my hands she was no longer allowed to be with
me
my darling was stolen from my life with a very little warning no one had
the right to take her from me with so much anger that's the way I saw It
And although my darling so far away from our home and life and how we used to be
There always be so much of her still here with me but still keep one eye open when sleeping just In case her spirit should come to say that she needs
me
I hope If that day should ever come that when she  leaves again she takes me with her so I no longer have to face this world on my own without
her
Still, sleep with one eye open
just In case Helen should ever need me

anger tends to creep up silently,
much like a cat would to its prey.

anger dwells in the pit of your stomach,
slowly eating away all other emotions.

it steals your happiness, your pride,
your everything.

until you’re nothing more than
a ball of anger and sadness.

Again I walk this life
alone but much older
than before older but wise to try to cope with life alone
after so many years of marriage
strange
now the feeling that I've never felt before till the day you went
away
departed from my
life to be left here on my own
I felt cheated a life so
young was taken stolen from my heart left to
face this life here
all
alone
When Helen departed I felt so cheated her life stolen from me so young she deserved much better In life than to die that way

I'll tell you a story of a
the life I once lived with
a girl called Helen
for she was the love of
my
life
From school girl then to becoming my wife "God she was truly the love of my life
A time I remember we did first meet we sat a park
there holding hands bitterly cold with snow on the ground
Then I walked Helen back home to bid her good night looked In her eyes then I knew she would become
wife
She gifted to me a wonderful son, for 20 years we did have but as so often In life fate showed It's hand, but that hand can sometimes be cruel
And stole from me the love of my life, that of my beautiful wife, and to
this very
day  
I'm still asking why was she taken from me, for I now have to face life all alone without my beautiful
wife called
Helen at my
side
I'm still asking why was Helen stolen from me when I needed her so much to stay with me
