The Empty Yard Poem Verses

In the quiet of the street, your absence we'll find,
A neighbour, a friend, your love intertwined,
Gone too soon, we miss your embrace,
The kindness you shared, your unwavering grace.

With every tear that falls, every aching sigh,
We'll remember your smile, reaching for the sky,
In the quiet moments, your memory we'll trace,
Wishing to see you, in that familiar space.

The empty yard, a love we'll forever miss,
In the depths of our sorrow, a longing abyss,
Though you're gone, your love we'll carry,
In our thoughts, dear neighbour, forever you'll tarry.
