when did you leave me

what signs did I miss

what more could I offer

that it wouldn’t come to this


words once filled with laughter

only silence now they bring

smiles once full of sunshine

are now storm clouds gathering


you may still stand beside me

we may share the same space

yet the best that you could grant me

is to be alone in this place


let me mourn your passing

shed tears full of pain

remember only the best we were

let me find someone who loves me … again
