The Air You Left Behind

Source

I'm still breathing that thick air you left behind

that day you walked away from your place in my heart.




I'm breathing in and I can still smell you,

a smell that used to make my heart beat so much faster

like the sound of a train leaving the station.




My heart wouldn't slow down until your smell was gone,

until my eyes couldn't see you anymore

and until your body was separated from mine.




It's so hard to breath the air you left behind

and that place in my heart still is so empty.




I know you won't come back to fill it, so I'll do it myself

with beautiful things in life and wonderful words I hear.




I'm trying to fill that place you once had in my heart.

Hi Made. What we all seek is not material wealth, we think that is the answer. We do not appreciate that what we want to buy is 'peace of mind' That is what we a seeking. After a lifetime I know this to be true - you will triumph I am sure of it.

Hi old albion, I have never needed material things to be happy. You just need to find that "peace of mind" to feel good about yourself. Thank you!
