I’ve never felt so lonely,
I’ve never missed anyone,
like I miss you now.
It’s been thirty years,
Though it could have been a thousand,
And the pretty girls give me the eye,
And they smile at the sad lonely guy.
Rooted in the earth,
Looking at his shiny fingernails.
Like he’s god’s gift to the world.
No more waiting, I thought,
You ain’t coming home to this life.
That I hoped that we would share.
The empty walls cast a silver doubt,
My heart is a shallow wreck.
Moving on is going to be tough.
I walked far this weekend,
Among the multitudes, smiling in the seaside sun.
I feel the weight of your stars,
And I breathe your joy.
