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
