As dew on morning leaves,
quietly disappears,

as mist from deep valleys,
crawls away into open space,

every hearbeat of mine,
that once felt so true,

is lost on the edge of an ocean of blue.

Lost in a heartbeat,
the softest emotions,
the gentlest love,
the sense of contentment,
the touch of peace,

Lost in a heartbeat,
all that was precious,
all that I failed to hide.

Lost in a heartbeat,
the sweltering furnace of love,
leaving me cold, empty,
and desolate inside
