As I sit here
At the dried tear drop on my boot
The aching in my heart thumps louder as it swallows me whole
It reminds me of your panicked face
The words stumbling out trying to find the right things to say
It reminds me of your eyes
Wide open overflowing with tears
Mostly it reminds me of the way you hugged me
Yearning for one last touch before there was never more

As I stand up
Heavy hearted
It seems that it's our dried tear drops on my boot
