Pieces of you

Look at the stars in the sky, the sun shining, clouds blowing by. There you are.

When I look out on the ocean, smell the salt on the breeze and grey vessels passing by, I see you.

Gestures and words we used together, a wink, that smile never failing to curl the corners of your mouth… you.

Driving with all the windows down, no one ahead and no one behind, I look over at the empty seat beside me.  For a moment, I can almost see your eyes, brown-green and great big lashes.. are you still there?

No,  you are not.  You are gone.  You left.  

I am here, still holding real-estate for you in the empty space that was my heart.
