The subtraction of you

For many years I cried when I had lost you
I had no idea how hurt could grow
The sum of all the parts that had become you
Vanished from my life in just one throw

We met so many people that we laughed with
Your family and friends, I loved them too
But when I turn around they are not there
I’m left to carry on without you

Your mother was so kind and warm to me
Your father and I often danced together
My addition welcome in the family
We walked through joy and stormy weather

The friends we shared, sometimes even flirting
The photo albums bursting to the brim
Sharing others triumphs or when they’re hurting
Multiplied by love that saw no sin

The days are bound to pass the pain will heal
And one by one each memory sure to fade
Until that time has come my heart I’ll seal
Any may forever yearn that you had stayed

The subtraction of you
