Random, because I miss you

I see you in the strangest places
A parking lot
A crowded mall
A child’s smile

And I realize…I miss you
And I realize it doesn’t matter

Fall wind still blows the leaves
And Winter ushers in the silence
That lives until put to rest by Spring
Who surrenders to the heat of Summer

And the sun still rises and sets
On an expectant and anticipating world
Even if it never rises in my heart

Because the fact is…
You went away and left me with a ghost that haunts
And calls to me in the dark
Reminding me with every sigh
All you were to me.
