MENE HAL-TORS FI (Life Goes On)

Good Twin



Red, yellow, blue, green and

all the colors of the rainbow.

Swirling, twirling set in motion.

Light, dark, bright, subdued.

Raindrops on a fast flowing

river. Clouds lining the sky.

Fresh cut grass. Newly planted flowers.

Children playing.



The well is finally empty. All that is left is mire.

What happened to the light?

Why am I now covered in darkness?

Will the sun ever send its warm rays in my

direction ever again? The shadows have over taken my soul.



Is there any escape from this dungeon of unhappiness?

The cell door to my heart is forever locked.

The key was lost and will never be found.

All my hopes and dreams died with you.



Of course, I will smile and say that I am just fine. That I am adjusting quite

nicely to life without you. It is a bitter lie that leaves ashes on my tongue.

No one will ever know the depth of sorrow that I carry.

How can my heart still be beating?

How can my lungs still fill with air?

How can my eyes have any tears left?

Haven't I cried every last tear that I have?



How can I wake up tomorrow without you in my life?

Someone please, please, wake me up from this nightmare!

Whatever egregious sin I have committed, surely a

life sentence without you is too heavy a punishment for any crime that I have

committed. Here, take my eye, my arm, my heart.

I will gladly give them up if I could have

five more minutes with him in my life. The cost is not too high.

I would gladly pay it.



A hundred lashes with a whip could not possibly

hurt as much as this emptiness I feel.

Knowing that you will never come back.

Why didn't you take me with you?

Didn't you know that I am as good as dead without you in my universe?



How dare you leave me here all alone?

What kind of person are you to inflict such pain?

It is not fair. I did not bargain for this. You are cheating.

The cards are unfairly stacked in your favor.

How can I possibly triumph against such odds?



I will not let a little thing like your death keep us apart.

I will go on loving you in spite of you not being

here to keep your part of the deal.

I will not give up on you. I have fought too hard to give up now.

I know with all my heart that our destinies are intertwined.

This is not the end. It is just the beginning of our next journey.

It is written in your life's blood. You can't stop what is meant to be.

All I have to do is turn the page of this story and

you will be there. The next chapter begins with you.
