Silence’s Gift

If you could sit
alone in silence
for just a little while,
you’d have the time to remember
how much fun they are,
how much you wanted them,
how much love and life
you want to give to them.
And how much they give to you.

If you could sit
and hear the thoughts
in your mind
that are usually drowned out by
the incessant calls of
“Mommy,” “Mama,” “Mom”
for just a few minutes,
I promise you,
you’d run to be with them
again.

I know this because
today
I sat in silence
and wrote this piece.
And then, I ran home to scoop them up and into my arms.
The silence ended.
The love continued.
