When The Front Door - Poem by Gert Strydom

When the front door does close behind you
and the house awaits me without a sound
when some of the furniture is missing
and does leave open space and no children do laugh
then I will try to forget you
and hear the dogs howling heart broken
but in my heart I will know
that something of our love is still hiding there
and I will keep longing
as if seeing you again
just depends on the next moment
but know that the goodbye
does remain the reality between us
without reconciliation between you and me.

    Lovely poem....as if seeing you again
    just depends on the next moment
    but know that the goodbye
    does remain the reality between us
    without reconciliation between you and me.
