The boat was mediocre in its means but the skyline was gorgeous and friend sat and made me laugh. But you weren't there. And the smiles and laughter made me think of you even more.

And I sat laughing and eating with an emptiness in my heart, waiting for you to sit beside me. But you weren't there. Passing under the bridge, and beyond a purple sky, I think of you once again.

A quiet stillness out in the bay, dancing with a friend, rollerblading home again, and still you aren't there.

Last night I woke to find a sleeping dog beside me. And, for a second, my heart flared in hopes that it was you. But still, you weren't there.
