Empty Chair

Amidst the anger, pain and hate
In a lonely corridor I wait
To say hello or say goodbye
To friends I see now passing by

It’s not the same I’m just a blur
They only speak of me as her
I walk these halls both day and night
Though just a shadow out of site

Time will pass and memories fade
You’ll soon be gone, but here I stayed
A memory of gentler times
Of lullabies and nursery rhymes

When graduation comes to pass
And before you say goodbye to class
Don’t forget I’m always there
So save for me an empty chair
