The Silence of an Empty House

The silence of an empty house
Once I craved the silence
Seeking peace and quiet
Now the silence is deafening
Each day without my spouse

I go room to room
Seeking, hoping, left with despair
The silence echoing in my ears
The noise more than I can bear

If only I could hear the whisper in my ear
I love you 
It is you I adore
Then I would whisper back
I love you more

The silence of an empty house
Is deafening to my ears
Yet I can hear my heart breaking
And the drop of every tear

Goodbye My Love

Oh, how can one bare the loss of a spouse or even divorce? Thank you, for your heartfelt poem. I have never had to experience that kind of loneliness but I can only imagine. It would be a crippling thing to bear. Very insightful and beautifully written.

A beautifully written sad and heartfelt verse, Shirley. I think the silence of an empty house is felt by many people who have lost their spouse. T.J
