By
   Your sweet scent still lingers in

Air where you haven't been in years.

The ghost of you still haunts me

Daily;

I search you out because you are

Still alive in my world.

In the quietest of rooms, I can hear

Your chocolate laughter, and I

Listen blissfully to my memories.

Sleeping, I can hear your rhythm, but

Waking brings silence.

I can still feel you in my

Chest - the warmth you bring to

My entire body is still affecting my

Daily routine, and making my mind's eye

Blinded by the honey-gold colour of

Your touch.

Beautiful :) I love the line "Your chocolate laughter" because it has so many ways it can be interpreted. This is great - be proud of yourself!
