Ashen,
ashen and gaunt,
you look like you have seen a ghost who has come to haunt,
yes, you are as white as a sheet and frightened by what I am not sure,
by what I am not sure,
but you look ashen and gaunt and you have tears in your eyes,
but from whence did they come?
For you are like a storm to me, and crying endlessly and blurting out your pain so rapidly,
and you sob unendingly to me and tidal waves of tears they come,
tidal waves of tears they come again and again and again in the morning sun,
and I hold you and you are in pieces,
you are in pieces and I will do my best,
I will do my best to ease your worries until the evening comes,
until the evening comes,
for you are dear to me and I have no wish to see you in such pain,
I have no wish but here come those tears again, and again in a never-ending refrain, in a never-ending refrain,
and I just want to take away your pain,
I just want to take away your pain and you are ashen,
ashen and gaunt and you look like you have seen a ghost who has come to haunt,
and I hope in time you will explain,
you will explain and I can begin to help ease your pain,
I can begin to help ease your pain, a difficult task, but I will do my best,
I will do my best and I will be here to the end,
to the end of the day and by night, I hope we will have chased it away,
I hope we will have chased it away my friend.
