No voy a pensar que te has ido.
“No voy a pensar que te has ido.
Porque cada amanecer será menos
Te mantendré cerca en mis recuerdos
No voy a pensar que te has ido.
Tu risa cantará en días de viento
Tu terquedad sera como tormentas de media noche.
No voy a pensar que te has ido.
La alegría simple de tus ojos.
El placer de tu sonrisa
No voy a pensar que te has ido.
El breve tiempo que estuviste aqui
Trajo algo a mi alma
No voy a pensar que te has ido.
Pero una parte de mi va a cambiar.
Mis lágrimas se detendrán, con el tiempo
NO voy a pensar que te has ido.
Pensaré que esperas
Para guiarme
Quedo a la espera de ese día, a medida que llega
Búscame, como te busco yo.”

a credit and much thanks

“I will not think of you as gone”

Fade to slumber

No drink this night
No booze numbs me
No dreams torments
No other regret
No more tears
Must not drink
For sleeps surcease
Releases past
Forgo these tears
Discarded alone
One more drink
Dulling memories
Stop dreams
One large one
Takes my pain
Takes my dreams
Forget
Release
Fade to slumber

I will not think of you as gone
For each dawn would be less
Keep you close in my
memories
I will not think of you as gone
Your laughter will sing in windy days
Your stubbornness be midnight’s storms
I will not think of you as gone
Simple joy in your eyes
The pleasure of your smile
I will not think of you as gone
brief time you had here
Brought something to my soul
I will not think of you as gone
But a part of me will change
My tears will stop, in time
I will NOT think of you as gone
But as waiting
To guide me
I await that day, as it arrives
Look for me, as I look for you

One more

Just one more
Numbs the pain

Just one more
Chases the fear

Just one more
To forget

Just one more
For the past

Just one more

So I might sleep alone

Just one more
To hide my fear

Just this
I wish to sleep
Without dreams

Darkness

Deep in darkness
Silent lonely
Candle flickers
Blueish screen
Softly taping
Elicits words
Sampling
Tasting
Testing
Choosing
Chasing dark mood
Dreams
Fantasies
Hopes
Moments
Forgetting

False sleep

Feelings bind me
Torment me
Tease me
Dream forget
Dreams hide
Tattered dreaming
Dawns harsh light
Empty days
Colored dreams
blind this mind
Oblivion restless sleep
Booze trades in blank memories
Offers false sleep

Loss

Torments of my own
Twisting dreams
Teasing memory
Lamented loss
Each morning anew
Beg as a dream
Scents do linger
Fingerprint to my soul
Touched
Lost
Hinted tears
Held to forget
Held to remember
Held to feel
Eyes closed turning away
