Without

by Eric Y. Theriault

Saw not,
your wonderful smiling face,
or you brown eyes over the counter;
Your beautiful hair did not bounce,
as you wandered up the stairs looking down;
And when I looked up,
no smiles waved hello.

Yes,
Life was so very different today,
as we shared no words or thoughts;
But I really missed you,
and longed for your return.
My world is always quite lonely,
Without You.
