For the lonely…
Many times, I sit in silence
With my thoughts waging war
Trying so hard to remember the sound
That my heart is longing for.
It’s the sound of your pick up truck
Pulling up into the drive
The tv turned on… and loud
The minute you arrive.
It’s the singing in the shower
Like Hardy live on stage
Very rednecky and off-key
With a little drawl within the range.
I have mentioned to young mothers
When their children are being loud
This will be missed in the future
When their children aren’t around.
It’s the sounds I no longer hear
If I could hear it again, if only
The silence in my heart and mind
Would not seem so awfully lonely.
