The Absent One
There was a hole where you should be
a gap in space incomplete
by the one that should be here
by the one absent from this place.
In the past it was so easy
to anticipate you'd be there
now I wonder if I had sinned
to assume the best in my life.
We danced together under stars
when time stood still in recompense
for two fools who owned the world
before life unjoined the two of us.
There is no fault here at hand
as life decides the circumstance
of people meeting along the way
as time unwinds as it may.
This does lessen my heart's pain
the longing for what we had
I am here and you are not
this I know about the absent one.
