TextEdit

Not one brief moment ever passes by
when I don't see the splendor in your face,
and when my sight might stumble out of place,
your image reappears before my eye.
The reckless rage of heartache lurks nearby
and threatens to devour and erase,
but not one moment ever passes by
when I don't see the splendor in your face.
There's nothing else but you to satisfy
this unseen emptiness, this hollow space;
there's no one else that ever could replace
the pure, breathtaking passion you supply.
I'll never let one moment pass me by
when I won't see the splendor in your face.
