In Memory

it’s crazy the things i think what dress should I wear ?

I’ve lost my way

lost my lighter

it’s another day

a little higher

I had a choice

I lost my voice

I enjoy what destroys

head filled up with noise

Of grief and all its joys

who are you anyway

you take shape, in escape

and life’s stage is a screenplay

I’m waiting in the driveway

waiting for another birthday

calling in the hallways

standing in your doorways

and I will always

follow through, for you my love

are great

if I was late,

you would wait

didn’t flip out

now i do without

you made so much of my character

you the caregiver,

honey what you want for dinner

you left my lights a little dimmer

I only see you in old pictures

I replay our memories like

the scripture

and the person in the mirror

needs you so much nearer

you should be here, but

your not its clearer

we didn’t end anything

still waters run deeper

5 years since your gone

5 years how to move on

5 years I tried to be strong

5 years it felt we were dealt

so wrong

I need your advice so desperately

speak to me urgently

your words fit in so perfectly

I miss late nights on the phone

I look for you every so cleverly

but all I find is a shoebox of memories

talk to me in that ol certain tone

the house forever empty

for you have gone home.
