Beneath the grains of diamond spread across the sky,
many a thousand miles away from home,
I lay beside a large swimming pool, left alone
by people in such silent hours of the night.

The sharp smell of chlorine was lurking in the air
yet all I could smell was the sweetness of your hair!

How I miss burying my face in them,
drowning both my lungs in their aromas
and my lips traversing the softness of your neck
while you whispered a happy song of love to me!

But gone for good are those golden days from our life,
as I have watched you become another man’s content wife.
