A certain depth
in my voice;

A sadness–
inexplicable;

A pain–
unbearable;

Nobody knows
it’s cause
you have left me.

Yet I want to thank you
for the gift you have
bestowed upon me;

I want to thank you
even though
you have left me!

For you have made me a better man
by being at my side, when you were.
