That even though it’s been months
You’re the last person I think of
Before slumber
And the first that occupies my mind
When I wake

I search for you within the crowds
The sea of people
I see you everywhere
And yet
You’re nowhere to be found

I visit the gym
In order to sob in the shower after
I swim at night
For my tears are dampened
By the darkness

The places we visited
The routes we took
The songs you sang
I revisit them
Always, with a tissue in my hand

That I know
Where to find you
And how I’m compelled to
Sit in a corner and observe while
You sing

How much I wish you’d
Held my hand
A little tighter
Kept me in your embrace
A little longer

Do you know

This heart has changed

Because of you.
