Absence

Sitting on a bed all empty and cold
A thousand recollections vaguely unfold
In a deafening silence feeling so alone
I count the hours till you come home

Birds they chant it is early morn
Another day hath come to scorn
I open my eyes something feels so wrong
I yearn for your laughter sweet and warm

At purple dusk dark shadows they seep
Unto my solitary wakeful retreat
Slumped in a corner so urging to weep
Eyes tightly closed I strive to sleep

How do I cope oh what do I do?
When you’re away I’m sad all blue
Believe me love its nothing but true
My world is in ruins if not for you!
