Me Without You - Poem by Bill Galvin

Just wandering about when I go out
To the places where we used to go.
Can’t focus on anything since you’ve been gone.

Traveling around I hear the sounds
Of songs when we’d dance real slow.
Can’t concentrate on much since you’ve been gone.

Seeing you in my drink makes me think
Back when you’d sing and I could crow.
Can’t enjoy a thing since you’ve been gone.

My new landscapes offer no escape
From the hollowness deep down below.
Can’t see anything since you’ve been gone.

When I plan the day, I turn to say…
Ah, but you’re not here anymore.
Can’t be complete since you’ve been gone.

Questions asked, but I have a good mask
To hide pain and put on a good show.
Can’t always share since you’ve been gone.

Even when I laugh, it’s just a path
To a cover up, so no one will know.
Can’t open up since you’ve been gone.

Clouds abound, and with fog all around,
My spirit won’t bear the sun’s glow.
Can’t see a clear sky since you’ve been gone.

It’s easy to see this is the new me;
Like it or not, my highs are all low.
Without you, can’t appreciate a thing;
They just carry no weight
Since you’ve been gone.
