i'll linger in your thoughts as night crawls into your bed
and the coldness on your right keeps you up.
you'll search for me in every woman who tries to take
my place and you'll realize it's a little too late.
you'll imagine me there when your favorite song comes
on and you'll reach over to an empty passenger seat.
you'll hear me criticizing you for another sleepless night
and you won't feel the warmth of my embrace.
you'll picture our wedding and the blissful honeymoon.
you'll wonder if our kids have my curly hair or your light eyes.
you'll think of me when you open your front door and you'll
regret the door you closed.
