The empty space where you used to be
Fills me with sudden misery
The gap that appeared next to the chair-
I look for you, and you’re not there.
Hairs on the rug remind me of you,
The things we used to see and do.
Now I am dogless, without a dog;
It hits me, fills my brain with fog.
I went out and saw a dog the same,
Which made me cry and feel insane;
I hope you’re up in heaven somehow;
I hate my life without you now.
