"The Poem" as written by Jan Vacik and Martin Harb....
I'm sitting here in an empty room
I'm writing a poem now to you
It's time to think about what we had
And when the sun is going down
All my feelings come around
I'm so sorry, cause you're dead

If I could tell you all the pain I feel
And all the sorrow grows tonight

Why did you leave me here alone
Why did you leave me on my own
Was it time we just had borrowed
Was it our destiny
Or just my final fantasy
And I'm left behind in sorrow, and pain

Smoke and gloom are in the Air
And your shades are everywhere
Now I've learned the world called dying
I'll put a rope around my neck
And at last I'm looking back
To give up life is my defense

Do you know another way
Please come back and tell me how to stay

My final tears I script for you
These final cries I write for you
All my pain cries out for you
These final tears I shed for you
All my pain cries out for you

    "This is a story of a man writing a poem to his love, no longer on this earthly realm. He is on the verge of taking his own life in order to be with his love again, and he hears her calling and lamenting from the other side. A song of true love separated too soon."
