One More

One more breath
I cross the hallway
Into the doorway
And I find myself
Lost within my shadow
I once felt at home
The clock ticks down
One more countdown
I turn for a moment
Watch as you blur
Into the background
One more time
And your voice
Is so distant
That I can hear the echo
Of my heartbeat
Thudding at the bottom
I know you no longer see me
One more whisper
As my ghost collects her bags
And helps me out the door
It has been years
And your face comes to me
One more time
And still leaves me cold
As that one day
I faded one more time
Into the background
