I Never Noticed It Until You Left

I Never Noticed It Until You Left

I never noticed it until you left,
But, now, with you gone, it's obvious.
Before, I had assurance of love and happiness,
And now I'm nothing but emptiness.

My heart's consumed by what's not there.
My days are long, my vacant stares
See nothing but your face, just out of reach.
I need what I can't have.

I never noticed it until you left,
But, recently, it's been made clear,
That my life without you isn't a life.
I need you with me. I need you here.
