An Empty Chair

I sit and stare
and stare
and stare
I sit here just staring
at the empty chair

A chair
once filled with love
with joy
and family things
a chair
filled with laughter
and everyday ordinary things

Those days are gone
there is no one there
and so I sit and stare
and stare
where love once sat
is now
just an empty chair
and so I sit
I just sit and stare.

One thought on “An Empty Chair

  1. Potency of absent loved one. Memory imprint association. Person and chair, inseparable, yet all that remains is the chair – the person no longer in your life. No longer lived presence for you.

Would love to hear from you.
