Emptiness

Emptiness

Everyday I see her sit there staring at the lake, lost in the emptiness that surrounds her, lost in the emptiness that lies within, startled occasionally by a splash in the water when an ambitious fish tries to reach for the sky, or by a skein of honking geese flying over the lake. And as she gets up she takes one last look at the spot next to her to make sure its empty! That’s the only way she can make sure that she is still alive. The only truth in her life now is that he is gone forever….. that the spot next to her will be empty as long as she lives….
