Emptied Within

Cannot count the tears
Pouring in endless
Can’t count the fears
Of being left
For dead
What did I do
What could I do
But what I did?
You wanted more
Than I could give
You needed more
Now I am emptied
For you
I gave everything
And then you left me
For the want of more
But I was emptied
And there is nothing left
To give
To give
But I forgave
Because love doesn’t keep score
But you are still gone
And there is no comfort
From that closed door
Now the solitude
Humbles my hopes
For there is no sanctuary
In loneliness
And again I wonder
Why you left
And still I wonder
What did I do
My hopes are gone
They left with you
