Love Lesson

Love Lesson

The hardest part of loving you

Of sharing these blissful moments

Is that it changes how I see me

And the life I have been leading

Being with you makes the contrast more stark

So without you becomes more visible

I can count the times I’m in company

By the times I am alone

I hear the silence scream at me now

When before my ears seemed full of chatter

And the colours that I must have imagined

Fade from these plain walls

They now stand lifeless

Like a tomb looming over me

Echoing loudly the sound of nothing

Suddenly I notice

That in my once thought busy life

I have so much more time to spare

Time that didn’t exist before

Time for you
