A year has come and gone,
I have yet to learn not to miss you,
I still look for you at times and,
My days seem colored with blue.
Your chair sits empty,
No one can fill the space,
I long for you each day,
Will this void always embrace?
How long before I am accustomed,
To a life without your presence near,
Must the nights e'er bring sadness,
Oh how I wish your voice to hear.
To touch your face would be wonderful,
Walk by your side a dream come true,
I would love to sit down to a meal,
I prepared just for me and you.
Spring is supposed to bring renewal,
Yet my world has not sprung anew,
I face another season of loneliness,
Forever lost without my love true.
Part of me is surely missing,
Wholeness escapes my being,
I pray to the Lord for comfort and,
Find this deep loneliness fleeing.
I will rise another day as the sun shines,
Go through all the motions of living,
Wonder if I will ever enjoy life again or,
Spend all of my remaining days grieving.
