I died a death but stayed alive

I Died A Death But Stayed Alive
In Phantom’s Likeness I Survive
Alive, Yet Dead, I Walk Alone
In Rooms With Walls As Cold As Stone
I Lived A Life And Dreamed A Dream
And Loved The Life You Lived With Me
Then In The Whisper Of A Breath
You Left, And Then I Died A Death
Though Dead I Live, I Cannot Part
From Love That Lives Within My Heart
Within My Sorrow I Must Strive
To Keep My Hope And Faith Alive
For All The Love That I Would Give
I Surely Would Prefer To Live
To Be Content, Not To Survive
But Feel My Spirit Come Alive
You Slowly Took Your Final Breath
‘Twas Me, My Dear, Who Died A Death
