The Princess is out of the Castle

The quiet in the house was the first sign
that you were not sitting in my chair
not looking out the blinds
showing me you still care

The silence was deafening
it had only been a short while
since our goodbyes
and remembering your sweet smile

I shut your door so I would not peek
and see that you were not there
Somehow it hasn't helped the emptiness
do you know I still care?

I cherished your phone call
telling me of your day
I can't believe you're not so small
anymore to be sent away

I am counting the days
until you return
enjoy your spring break, little one
I hope you're having fun.
