Departed

Like a puff of smoke it rises above in the air
As if floating over life and death, you and me
Lighter than air it seems as it makes its way
Up to the heavens it leaps in a single bounce

Leaving behind emptiness in my lap and your eyes

For in this windowless room, right before you
My soul has departedโ€ฆ
