Without You

streams photo: Peaceful Streams 16-1.gif

My heart cries out
As I go about
My daily life
Once someone's wife
Now a solemn widow
I don't know where to go
As I look out my window
I notice two squirrels and a large crow
I see the sun rise
Tears suddenly flow from my eyes
I will never hear you call my name
Things will never be the same
Trying to be strong
As I sing the same old song
My heart is filled with so much pain
Loving memories of you remain
My heart aches forevermore
You will never walk through the door
I feel lonely and blue
Life is difficult without you.
