I Sit Here Alone

I sit here alone

Blanketed by a new quiet

My mind wonders

Memories spring forth

Feelings of love surface

I sit here alone

Looking around I see

Times of happiness

Replaying each scene

Connected moments linger

I can taste the shared tears

I sit here alone

In a crowded room of yesteryears

The stillness is comforting

A time capsule unlatches

Each face

Each touch

Each emotion

I sit here alone

Welcoming such wonderful company

The best I’ve ever known

Dr. Seuss quote. The empty chair reminds me of the first Thanksgiving without my father.
