You Need To Know That I Need You More

Come to me from the grave.
Cure my heartbroken self.
Listen to my mortal cries.
Embrace me in the night.  

It was the day when I lost you.
I stood in misery and felt the wounds.
Everything spun to nothing.
The day you left, I died.  

May the gods save me here.
Other than loving you,
I’ve nothing to love.
And this unloved, I’ve died.  

I won’t see, nor hear you.
The day you left, I died.
And dying is seeing no tomorrow.
You need to know that I need you more.
