Not Here Anymore

October 9, 2008

I stare at your picture even though
You’re not here anymore
I keep thinking I might see you come around the corner then I remember
You’re not here anymore
I laugh at the memories we once shared hoping there will be more but
You’re not here anymore
I still have your old scarf, I want to give it back to you but I cant because
You’re not here anymore
It finally starts to sink in that
You’re not here anymore
The tears start to fall from my eyes as I remember
You’re not here anymore
I whisper through the tears that I miss you but you cant hear me because
You’re not here anymore
I look at the picture one last time and realize
You’re not here anymore
But you’ll always be in my heart.
