silhouette of us pressed
on a photograph left
a history of our past
winding through my
thoughts as i re-examine
the sweet early years of
our dear life
short-lived by the horror
of one rainy night

i feel your cold hands
visiting me while
i dream about you
and your absence
makes me long
for you first thing
in the morning

my tears re-visit me
over the cycle of years
and i travel the road
without you and
this is more than
a misery unwanted

darker are the nights
bluer are the days
abandoned like me

you left me dreaming
a home with you
but you’re gone
