And in this time of loneliness,
My thoughts they rest on you,
And then my wandering mind returns
To everything you say and everything you do.
How lost I am without you,
How joyless am I here on my own.
And yet I must of needs go on,
As I carry this burden alone.
And when I lay me down to rest
And close these weary eyes.
It is you I see in the darkness,
For you are where my heart lies.
And as I go through this time alone,
I know that you have not left me.
For you are safely locked in my heart,
And you have set me free
