Where are you?
Where have you gone?
I've looked for you in all your favorite places.
There is no indent on the chair cushion you were just sleeping on,
But I keep checking anyways.
There are no prints on the freshly vacuumed carpet, or impressions left in the sunny spots,
But I keep looking anyways.
The air is empty, no creaking of the floorboards announcing your presence,
But I keep listening anyways.
My life is forever changed, empty, devoid of color..
Only silence winds around me now.
Where have you gone, old friend? You were just here..
I'd thought we'd have more time.
I'll stay here, and keep watch for you.
I'll keep watch, always.
