Piece of You

Memories of you linger
It seems you still live here
A pair of shoes by the door
A pile of books on the floor
Seems everywhere I look
There’s a piece of you

But you won’t be back
You’ve gone that’s that
And I’ve got to carry on
But it’s so hard to do
When all around me
There are pieces of you

Your chair sits empty
But I talk as if you’re there
I know just what you’ll say
And how you’ll look my way
And if I close my eyes, inhale
I can smell your presence still

And when I wake up in the morning
For a moment you’re right here
But when my eyes are open
It’s just hollow shaped by you

A cold and empty space
hat no one else will fill
