Empty Rooms

The door creaks as it swings open
There was a time when it didn't make a sound
The fireplace is cold now
Where there always burned a cheery fire
As I looked around
Running my fingers through the dust
And around the rims of wine glasses
That haven't been disturbed for some time
I listen to the fading voices of spirits
That speak of livelier times
Closing my eyes as I smile
The pictures on the wall
Really should be faded with time
But they are as bright and as colorful
As they ever were yesterday
And I pause for several moments
Just looking at them and remembering
As I pull the sash back from dusty windows
And look outside
There really is a whole great big world out there
And I really should get to it
But sometimes all I really want to do is stay here forever
Just staring at the pictures on the wall
But finally I turn to the door
My footsteps echoing
In this empty forgotten room
Haunted by the ghosts of beautiful
That I so wish I could see just one more time
Whispering to me just as I reach the door
"Are you still mine?"
With my hand on the door knob
I stop for a second with eyes closed
Smiling as I whisper back
"Always forever"
"And a single day"

I'd guess every house has a room like this.
Some place frozen in time with nothing changed ....nothing rearranged...like someone died with no warning and the seconds stopped right there to preserve it just in case they ever come back.....They never come back
