Written for the BrewNSpew Cafe: 
Word/expression of the week – empty – (adjective) 


physical separation endures
your side of the bed empty
vacant chair at the dining table
alone on our loveseat
visiting with you at the nursing home
every second of every minute counts
holding hands, enjoyment, a moment
remembering this and that, laughter
tears flow when I leave
our vow taken so long ago
how can we find ourselves
here today, 56 years now passed
it all seems like yesterday
