Time Passing Away

I have created a world
of plenty, of joy
only to realize
it means nothing
without you

and time passes away

a world so full
of beauty and love
yet empty for me
without you

and time passes away

I strive to fill it
with action, with thought
but it will never feel full
without you

and time passes away

the days go by
the seasons change
and nature in all her glory
reveals herself to me
how empty that glory
without you

and time passes away

so I withdraw
inside myself
in search of the peace
I used to know
yet peace is a void
without you

and time passes away

I move and breathe
some call it life
but I can't feel alive
without you

and time passes away

what spell has been cast?
what enchantment so strong
that this passing of time
cannot heal?
