The Vanishing


You walked out of my life
without looking back.
How could you
so easily vanish
with no warning.


You promised you would
be by my side
until the stars faded out.


You said you would
love me forever,
but forever proved to
last a lifetime. 


I miss you,
more today than yesterday.


My heart aches
in the absence of you.


I stare into space
in disbelief
of the fact that you are gone.


The truth finally sinks in
when I see your name
engraved in stone.
