In The Pew

I sat in the pew all alone
surrounded by myself
nobody to hold my hand
in prayer, or a shoulder where
to lean my head on
no warmth risen from one side
or the other
only emptiness in the pew
the peace hug was uneventful
no tears or love I felt
because you were not there
as I was all by myself
the prayers were as usual
but you were missing
in the pew
Your presence is so grand
it is missed every single day
from sunrise to sunset
I sat alone in the pew
When I held hands with the others
there was no love, but tears
in my eyes
I felt your absence even more
I walked the streets, we strolled together
nobody to run for the bus with
only emptiness
and I sat at church listening
to the prayers
I sat in the pew all alone
surrounded by myself
nobody to hold my hand
in prayer, or a shoulder where
to lean my head on
I was alone in the pew
