Gift of Nothing

by debbylyn

As stars delight the deepening night
When he lays him down to sleep
I wonder if I cross his mind
Or haunt his slumber deep

Do tears remain as patches
Wet on his pillowcase
I wonder if he cries for me
If my memory's been erased

As days fall into darkness
Alone through blackest night
I wonder if my kisses dwell
A bitter lost delight

Cold remains his empty heart
No love left there to see
Somehow I picture nothing
Which is all he gave to me
