When I Lost You©

The rain was pouring down hard
The streets were flooded
The wind was blowing hard
There was a misplaced scent of Jasmine in the air
I heard tire screech and metal crash
My heart dropped
And that’s when I knew I had lost you
My eyes quickly filled with tears
I sat frantically rocking back and forth
The doorbell rang and the footsteps got closer
The police were talking but I was in a trance staring straight into space
Ten years later
They never found your killer
And your room remains just the same
I sit hoping that one day you’ll still come waltzing through the front door
On paper I lost you
In my heart you remain here always
