When she closes her eyes

He is still there.

She can sense the smile in his eyes.

She can smell his skin,

And hear his voice

She doesn't have to try; she can see him.

When she sleeps at night

She dreams sometimes;

It is always him that she sees.

He was right by her side

For years and years

But she needs him most now he's gone.

She sees him still

Though he is no longer here

Does he see her pain and anger?

For better or worse

Till death do they part

Wasn't supposed to happen till later.
