Portrayal of Tone

The sound of your voice
tonight portrayed
all that at the break of day
might be denied
and I feel your spirit cry
for all we lose
each time you move
away from me

while memories of loving tone
are blended with the life you've known
but now the sound of loneliness
replaces warmth of your embrace
and the grief of leaving happiness behind
screams out within my mind

yet we must seek before we find
what's true
while the truth, to me, is you
just as you are . . .
