Left Behind

You have everything before you, traveling adventure
I have nothing left behind.
You have family and friends, photographs and stories
I have ghosts of you to find.

Just a lonely car ride home, empty silent rooms
Wishing you were here.
I am sitting where you sat, seeing what you saw
In my heart you’re near.

Doesn’t seem like yesterday, you were standing by my side
I was hugging you goodbye.
Seems like miles and years ago, I was giving you a smile
We were trying not to cry.

We both promised to come back, to see each other soon
But ‘soon’ can take so long.
Just know across the months, across each dragging day
I am sending you a song.

I like the second to last stanza. That made my heart sad , but i love your poetic ability.

I always admire people who can make rhyming work, and you happen to be one of those people. =) Great job!
