Since you've been gone

Since you’ve been gone 
I’ve seen your face a thousand times a day.
As vivid as the brightest star set in a sky so dark….
as a solitaire in jet.

Since you’ve been gone 
I’ve heard your voice a thousand times a day.
As sweet as any lark could sing
Clearer than the Inchcape bell 
proclaiming her presence across the mist draped rocks.

Since you’ve been gone 
I’ve felt your touch a thousand times a day.
As gentle as the slightest breeze
As passionate as the deepest rose, blood red.

Before you were gone 
My soul was touched but once.
That once that lasts a lifetime and beyond.
Outstripping even time itself.
