Its ok for now,everybody is handling their business.

Soon they will return, weary from their day.

I sit at this table that seats 6 and I imagine I hear their talk and their laughter.

They'll want to eat something hot and I will have it ready for them.

The house will be clean,cozy and warm and inviting just as it once had been.

For now I sit and wait.

How will I fill this empty room?

Now that the hour has come, they all file in one after the other.

They come in and see everything, and one only one's eyes mist up.

He mouths a thank you and I am pleased.

The rest look in amazement then walk out.

They decided not to stay and eat, to pay their respects.

They go out for dinner instead, after all my hard work.

Wish they'd thought to do this before and took me with them, when I was still alive.

How will I ever fill this empty room?
