this song came to me at the beach, on August 7th, 2016, 3 weeks after Mom died.



lyrics & music copyright 2017 Annie Lanzillotto (8/7/2016)

Are you gone – or is it me?
Are you gone – how can it be?
Without you – how can I talk
Without you – how can I walk

Without you – the world’s less bright
Without you – morning is night
Without you – how can I talk
Without you – how can I walk

This deep wound – I cannot hide
A burning – abyss inside
When your eyes break open my sky
When blue eyes break open gray sky
Like a child I cry

Are you gone – how can it be?
Are you gone – O is it me!
Without you – how can I—
Without you – how can I--
