Friday RPD: Absent

Does absence make the heart grow fonder?

Absent the ones we love
Memories of times gone by
An empty house
An empty building long ago abandoned

Those absent
Are what we covet
Appreciation grows
For those we no longer have, can no longer touch

Love grows
For our dearly departed
A home we had to leave
Empty shelves, empty nest
Beauty we no longer see
Music we no longer hear in the silence of our mind.

Absent is what is no longer remembered
No longer reachable
Absent is the past.
