Wednesday 28th October
Every day, and night, I do speak to you, in a thousand silent ways.
I acknowledge a sound, a smell, music, a book, a cloud, a flower, a moment in time, a face in a crowd, a bird, a butterfly, or that black cat in the cemetery.
So many incidences that bring you to mind, and I say your name.
I speak to you silently.
All the time.
And I do talk to you out loud too.
I ask how you are, what you’re doing, which aeroplane you’ve caught today, what theme park you’re visiting.
And I tell you I love you.
That I’m missing you so very much.
I say those words so many times to you.
“I closed my eyes
and spoke to you
in a thousand
I wish I could hear your voice in return.
