I hang your picture
On a peg in my mind
Where each time I wish
I can unhook it
And have a closer look
At you, the one I love.

I flash your smile
On a mirror in my mind
Where each time I wish
I can bask in its radiance
As it thaws my frozen heart
After a gloomy day out here.

In the arms of my mind
I cuddle your absence
Where each time I wish
I can rewind the rusty clock
As I remember days gone by
When we were physical.

I travel every night
On a lonely road in my mind
Where, all the way, I wish
To be with you always
Just to lighten this burden
Of being alone all the time.[/tab]
