too many empty spaces

the empty chair at the reception.2016-10-03

the empty passenger seat in the car.

the empty place on the sofa.

the empty pillow on our bed.

the empty sounds in my world.

Life just seems sort of empty now.  I have family and I have friends who I enjoy.  It’s just not the same.  When the grandbabies do or say something, I expect to look up and see your smile and hear your laughter.  That’s part of the fun of life – sharing it with you.

Some of the joy left with you.  I don’t like that.

I miss the joy.  I miss your laugh and your smile and your hugs and your touch.

I just miss you.

If every time I thought of you, a star fell, Well, the sky would be empty.

I don’t even know where I got that.  I don’t even care.  I just wanted you to know.
