They say there is a vacuum when someone is not present,
But what if you can hear the voice…..and feel the touch?
That supreme connection beyond physicality,
Sure has the power to say much.
That you can feel someone walking by your side….
There is an opinion given, a smile crossing the absent lip,
Each time that you are happy and content.
That unsaid approval, that quiet applaud….
Gives you the courage to brave the odds,
To face the challenge and to keep moving on.
