Another room locked up
Somewhere in the corner.
Let not the poignant fragrance fade
Or mix up with new unknowns.
The room you left is vacant, but for the memories so dear.
Your laughter lingers in the space that's still yours,
Your words echo in the hollowness,
Your portrait still adorns its wall.
The hearth still glows with warmth,
Broth still bubbles to soothe the aching soul.
A new room for a new person
Or an old one to welcome an ol' friend.
