Now That You're Gone

I heard the news. I cried for weeks.


How am I ever going to come to terms with not having you in my life anymore? 


Your smile, your laugh, your prescence. It filled the room whenever you were near.


Now all I feel is a void.

A void deeper than the ocean, wider than any valley. 


I miss you beyond any explanation. I want, I need to see your face again.

Live, full of happiness. Full of joy. 


Now that you're gone, who am I going to confide in? 

Now that you're gone, who will walk me down the aisle on my big day?

Who's going to stand up in front of the church and say "I give my god daughter to be wed."


Now that you're gone, I don't know how or when I will ever get used to the fact that I won't see your face, hear you sing, or see you smile. 


Now that you're gone, my life will forever and always never be the same.
