I still think about you when I least expect it
Your face appears before me
The feelings creep back.
Your smile haunts me

My stomach goes tight
My eyes stare into eternity
The tears begin to well

I don’t fight the memories
It’s better to feel the pain
The pain of loss feels so familiar

The tears start to flow
Oh my companion of loss so deep
How you make me feel so empty inside

So much time has past
I force myself to forget the memories
My heart won’t soon forget

My mind longs for what could have been
My heart aches for what should have been
I would die for what could have been

I can’t lie, I miss you
I miss you when I least expect it.

I sit in the quiet

Every Night I whisper
