I Thought

I thought

When I awoke this morning,
I smelt roses, I looked over,
Your bedsheets were untouched, and cold,
Your uniform, lay upon the chair.

In a daze I got dressed.

The house was numb, grieved and angry,
Your breakfast bowl stayed empty,
Your coffee cup untouched,
Waiting for you.

I looked up in a daze

I thought I heard you singing,
I thought I saw you dancing,
But it was just my imagination,
Playing cruel tricks on me.

I got up in a daze.

That night I couldn't sleep,
I thought I heard your snores,
I thought I saw your silhouette,
beneath the sheets.

I thought...
