There might have been a time
When I would let you slip away
I wouldn’t even try but I think
You could save my life…
Do you still sing alone
When you’re all by yourself?
Or do you switch to the next one
Sing for somebody else?
When you’re cold don’t forget
How this song kept us warm
You would dance on my bed
I would lay in your arms…
He left everything behind when he left her. It wasn’t that he was gone, perhaps because he wasn’t gone at all. It was everything. She could see him and feel him everywhere. The coat he left in the closet that still smelled of him, especially on cold days… His pillow, still laying untouched beside her own. Every nook and cranny, every shadow, every song that played on the radio was a reminder to her that he had been there once.
He had been there, with a smile brighter than the sun and arms so strong that she always felt safe, warm, and protected. He had been there to celebrate her victories and wipe away her tears.
She’d stopped listening long ago, afraid that one of those songs would play, and her resolve would crack, and the rest off the world would be able to see that she wasn’t as together as she liked to pretend that she was.
She’d never missed anything so much.
Sometimes, if she listened hard enough, she could still hear his voice, softer than a whisper, but as clear as though he was standing right behind her with his lips pressed to her ear.
“Don’t worry,” he’d always say, “I’ll see you again soon.”
