RETROSPECT

I woke up this morning,
sun shining through the blind,
I took a look in the mirror,
and something swept my mind.

You weren't there to see me wake,
I didn't see your smile,
for when I do I feel like,
my days are all worthwhile.

I went into work today,
kids running through the halls,
I looked at plans for tomorrow,
and is sad when nobody calls.

I got in the car to go home today,
on the radio I hear a song,
it reminded me of you,
and how hurtful it is you're gone.

I went out with a friend tonight,
smiled and wore a brave face,
for all I really want in life,
is to have you in this place.

I get a daunting feeling,
one which won't disappear,
what's the point in all of this?
What’s the point when you're not here?

I went to sleep that night,
tried to prepare for the days ahead,
and if I look real careful,
you're there on your side of the bed.

I could hear you telling me,
that no matter what life throws,
you have a love like no other,
even in death it continuously grows.

I got up this morning,
sun shining through the blind,
I took a look in the mirror,
and something crossed my mind.

You were there to see me wake,
and I could see your smile,
and when I did I realized,
you're only absent for a while.

I closed my eyes and in the dark,
I know I’ll see you again,
the only thing that troubles me,
is not being able to say when?

For now I must be patient,
and one day my time will come,
and you'll be there to take my hand,
and safely guide me home.
