footsteps

They say you’ve gone
But I know you’re here
You’ve just slipped quietly, peacefully, suddenly away.

They say you’ve gone
silently, secretly you’re still here
Watching us, smiling
Down from above.

They say you’ve gone
Soundless footsteps fall
On the floor.
I turn around there’s no one there
But I know you’re still here
Standing at the back
Watching quietly.
