Missing You

Nothing’s changed
My days still come and go
But you’re no longer here
Makes me a different soul

Where did she go
Not even a goodbye
A final I Love You
I can see the tear in your eye

It’s like life stopped for a moment
Then started again
And in that stillness
I imagined my pain

That little place in your heart
Where I stayed
While she wasn’t looking
Until to rest she was quietly laid

Reaching for a glimpse
Under the backyard trees
Impressions in the play of light
I remember thee

A love lost
Hanging in eternity
Decades of one life
Anchored in memory

Just moving through time
Until I can picture
Life without you
And a sense of the future
