Crickets sing the earth a lullabyAs the sun performs in the sky one last timeThis is not goodbyeBut something is not the sameThere is an unexpected silenceWords left unsaidEmptiness hangs in the airWith the sound of porch doors swingingThe fleeting feeling of something forgottenSomething missedFor the first time, people ask themselvesWill the sun rise tomorrowHoping for just once the answer is noTo enjoy the silence
For a few extra momentsBecause nothing is ever the sameExcept for maybe the smell in the airAnd a few leftover memoriesOnes that seem like two lifetimes agoAnd the bitter-sweet taste in your mouthWhen you realizeYou took something for granted
