'til next time.

My room is still, as if you never came.
I stepped in and a cold wind of emptiness ran through me.
My heart sank.

Just hours ago, my lips planted their love on your cheeks.
Just last night, I laid in the warmth of your arms, falling asleep to the beat of your chest.

The moment you arrived, I dreaded the goodbye.
The time had run out, like we knew it would.
you had to leave and now I lie here alone.

But the scent of your love remains.
I close my eyes and picture you beside me.
I squeeze my arms, remembering your embrace.

These memories will fill the room, holding me through the rest of the nights,
until I see you again.
