After You Were Gone - Poem by Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

after you were gone
your presence lingered
on the piano keys of my life
silence resounded with
the beauty you created
and your absence was felt in
memory of the air I breathed
and now your enchantment
remains as a lingering shadow
in every whisper of hope I have
