I tried to replace you with ice cream
But the pain was always there
Your memory stays with me, so I block it out with a scream
But the sound of your voice still haunts me, a sound I cannot bear

I tried to replace you with books
But the words had no affect on me
I remember your old fishing box; it sits on the floor still filled with hooks
But you are no longer here to take me fishing by that old willow tree

I tried to replace you with songs
But the lyrics only brought you back
Our love and happy memories were sadly not ones to prolong
But the past cannot be changed, a power that I lack

I tried to replace you with art
But my brush kept painting your face
I wipe my hand across the wet paint, the images break my heart
But the images stay in my head, filling an empty space

I tried to replace you with baking
But the smell brought back the holidays
Without you no memories we would be making
But now there’s just this coffin, I’m full of dismay
