Grandfather Clock

I still misplace my keys
Ask for your help when they're not found
I still call out to you
When I forget you're not around

I water your flowers everyday
They come back every year
I still set the table for two
When I forget that you're not here

I often wake in the night
And can make out a figure by the pale moon light
I still call out for you
When I know you're not around

I had to bring to a stop
The sound of the grandfather clock
I never thought I would be on my own
Alone in our home

I'm glad it happened this way
If the truth were known
Because I wouldn't want you to be on your own
Alone in our home

I still misplace my keys
Ask for your help when they're not found
I still call out for you
When I know you're not around

I'm afraid to visit you
I can't find the strength to see it through
For as I wander up to your stone
It confirms I'm on my own
