I thought I heard you calling my name,
but it was only the wind or perhaps the rain.
I look over at your picture in the frame.
The steady pitter-patter is driving me insane.
I thought I heard you laughing as I walked by the bedroom door.
Your perfume that lingers in the hallway is hard to ignore.
I would have sworn I heard footsteps creak across the floor;
Maybe it was the waves from the ocean crashing along the rocky shore.
I thought I heard you singing, but could not find you anywhere.
It must be the sound of some nearby wind chimes whistling in the Autumn air.
My heart gets to racing and it's quite a scare,
When I find long strands of your long black hair!
I thought I saw the sparkle in your amazing eyes.
But it was only the stars that brighten the cloudless night.
I find myself watching the sunrise,
and I still imagine you holding me tight
I thought I felt you kiss me with your soft lips.
I thought I ran my hand along the curve of your hips.
But it was only the silk covered pillow cases on our bed.
I awake to realize your memory still burns in my head!!
