 To be lost in faraway deep
    
    I lay before I sleep
    
    Warmth that my spirit seek
    
    I pray that you guide and keep
    
    Reminisced the piercing day
    
    I implored you to just stay
    
    Made a promise all will be okay
    
    Will make the return someday
    
    How foolish and naive to believe!
    
    Now I am bereaved
    
    Cold, lifeless, alone to grieve
    
    Bittersweet memories you leave
    
    Like a flower painfully withering
    
    A heartless winter never ending
    
    Candle's flame slowly dying
    
    Seasons of drought and famine
    
    But through the mist and haze
    
    A light beckons, caught me in daze
    
    Softly, tenderly, nothing can faze
    
    Filled with love, I am raised
    
    Brought my flower back to life
    
    End my infinite winter strife
    
    A new heat to my dying flame
    
    Season of rapture because You came.

The full cycle of loss and regaining what you love. I like the positive ending. Quite charming, in fact.
