Look at the stars in the sky, the sun shining, clouds blowing by. There you are.
When I look out on the ocean, smell the salt on the breeze and grey vessels passing by, I see you.
Gestures and words we used together, a wink, that smile never failing to curl the corners of your mouth… you.
Driving with all the windows down, no one ahead and no one behind, I look over at the empty seat beside me. For a moment, I can almost see your eyes, brown-green and great big lashes.. are you still there?
No, you are not. You are gone. You left.
I am here, still holding real-estate for you in the empty space that was my heart.
