The Empty Spaces

Plucked from the world
Like a fish from the deep blue
Never to be seen again
Whether we know it’s coming
Or taken by surprise accident
Shock is brought by finality
Physical disappearance
And then the memories flood in
Chipper smile in adversity
Or the constant grumble guts
No matter who they were
A space exists
Where their body was
A space exists
In somebody’s heart
A space exists
In future memories
