Everything will be different now. Everything.
I signed my name alone. I've never done that before.
Seeing my name on that line, surrounded by only blank space made me think.
This is just the beginning of blank spaces.
There will be the blank spaces on the letters, missing your name.
There will be the blank spaces in the air,
Missing the sound of your laughter and your tears
There will be blank spaces in moments
The smell of a fresh can of coffee when it opens
A Sunday morning, spending more time trying to wake you than enjoying it.
Then again, it was what I enjoyed.
The quiet at a table, just enjoying the presence of one another.
The suffering, the pain, and the distress, sharing all the world had to offer us
The more I think, the more the blank spaces fill up my head.
A head full of more alone than I was before.
Of all the blank spaces, the one that makes me hurt the most is the blank space in my future.
I never pictured a future without you.
There were always blank spaces in my future,
but I never worried much because you were the space that was filled in.
I signed my name alone. Nothing will be the same.
Now, it's up to me to fill in the blank spaces.
This is how I start.
