I Can't Imagine
Author: Dino Hi


I can't imagine, being in a house so empty
Everywhere I look, everything I touch
You've had a hand on it
The way the walls, been painted
And the pictures, arranged
I can't imagine, you being gone

The refrigerator magnets, of all the places gone
The way you fold, my pants
Leaving the blinds, half open
Your voice message, on the phone
I can't imagine, you being gone

The foods you like to eat, on the shelves
Your shoes, at the back door
The house plants, need tending to
A written message, to take out the trash
I just can't imagine, you being gone

What will I do? When the house is so quiet
Missing that voice, Dinner! Time to eat!
Seeing your chair, you're not there
I just can't imagine

This is a lovely poem Dino and something we all think about at some time in our lives...but you have written it in such a beautiful way. I hope there is no reason why you are writing it at this time?

Thanks Cap!

Thanks for your nice comment and taking the time to read it. It was one of those quiet days coming home after work and sitting down in the dining room. The thoughts suddenly started hitting me. "I just can't imagine, your love one gone." Thanks Cap, good to hear from you again.
