Everyday - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor

Everyday I set a place for you,
a cup, a plate, a chair,
I see you glide into the room,
summer dresses and golden hair.

Each moment I crack a joke or two,
trying not to laugh you eat your meal,
later driving the car, we steal away
down to the sea, heart's of love so real.

Everyday we lead this perfect life,
come to my side across the down,
a kiss, a touch to making love,
trace your body through your gown.

Back home at night, drinking sweet wine,
your laughter invades my mind,
carry you lightly to the bed,
this path to heaven, where love I find.

Everyday I set a place for you,
a cup, a plate, a chair,
everyday I see a space for you
it breaks my heart that you're not there.
