I made dinner tonight
Real dinner, complete with steamed vegetables
Dirtying dishes and everything
I set the table and sat down
I looked over at the couch to call you for dinner
But you weren’t there

So I sat and ate alone
The silence was deafening
The guinea pig didn’t even chime in

I’ve been really missing you these days
Wondering what you’re doing tonight
Thinking of your cuddles
Our laughter, your touch

I miss having you near
And wish I hadn’t let you go
But I know I needed to do that
To gather my thoughts and gain some clarity
To find my own courage and take my leap of faith

I just hope I don’t have to wait
Until Sudbury to see you beside me again.
