I am not feeling right

from the moment I open my eyes

My face hasn’t left my pillow yet

and I already need to cry


Because I’m starting another day

without you by my side

a day just like yesterday

and I’m burning for you inside


How do I explain this vacancy

that exists across my face

There’s something others cannot see

The many maps my fingers have traced


Someone once told me that I’m not here

that is indeed the gospel truth

the person that said it did stand near

But it was plain to see I was with you


It was a while ago that I was in your arms

holding you tight, smelling your hair

I flew away a day or two later

but it’s safe to say I’m still there
