The garden has lost its beautiful rose
And so the sky has lost its brightest star
As this emptiness echoes near and far
My life without you; fear the worst of foes
Echoes that speak only in evil dreams
To open the weary scars of the past
The nightmare that a love can never last
And as I sleep I hear only my screams
Yet wretched with pain I feel my lover’s touch
The gentle hand to ease my mind to fight
Against the haunting visions in my sight
I am returned; the one I love so much
She alone holds the key to set me free
From dreams that dare to steal my liberty
