If ..

If ..
You’re missing one or two,
Or even a few,
Around the table today,
Close your eyes and pray
Their face into view
And soon you
Hear their voice,
Feel a kiss upon your cheek,
So close you could speak.
Physically absent but
Spiritually present:
Imprinted deeply
In treasured memories
Always ready to peek through the door
And love you some more –
Their love never dies,
It shines from your eyes.
So add a spare chair
Even though they’re not there,
Smile through your tears,
Recall the past years
And remember how lucky you are .
