Ivy covers your window sill
Reflections linger, ever still

Eyes that shield the sunlit day
Memories that come and stay

Are shadows cast, an eerie face
Reflections linger, in this place

As I look up, no longer smile
Knowing you’ve been gone awhile

You never thought that you belonged
I never tried to prove you wrong

I watched as you let life slip by
I always thought you’d never die

How could I abandon you?
Reflections linger, filled with rue

Now this window, draws me here
Memories, becoming clear

My world will never be the same
Reflections linger, along with blame
