You are my friend, my soul mate

The shock of suddenly being left alone

The feeling of pain and hurt

When a part of you is wrenched away

How to fill those empty hours –

When we used to sit talking forever

But not saying a word?

Now my bed is ½ empty –

Who shall I converse with

When we cannot be overheard?

I missed you the moment

You turned away

Yet everything was so logical

So matter of fact

What could I really say?

So quickly I felt abandoned

Yet I saw it all in slow motion

No more us or we

But I and me

Who will be my soul mate

Now that you’re gone?
