I'd never ever felt this way until you had to say goodbye.
A feeling of loss so intense it's like I actually might die!
I can't eat, I can't sleep, your face is all that I see.
My chest feels so tight that sometimes I can't even breathe.
For it's not like you have just moved from one town to the next.
Where you've gone I cannot follow, unless I take drastic steps...
Just carrying on without you feels like I'm saying that I don't care,
but I don't know what else to do... My god this isn't fair!
I'm told I need to get through this, that things get easier in time.
But it's the worst feeling I've ever known, to be the one who's left behind...
