Departure

I’m getting through the food we bought
Before you left for good.
I guess that means you never thought
A minute that you would.

The pasta doesn’t taste half bad;
The lentils are a treat;
The bread’s the best I’ve ever had –
Such yummy things to eat!

Of course, I could enjoy them more
If you were here to share;
I mean, that’s what we bought them for
When all my shelves were bare.

Well, now they’re empty once again,
Except for almonds and cayenne.
