I learn to live with the silence

I learn to live
with the silence.
Thoughts echo
in the empty house.

I transform your room
into my space,
candles and shells
on the windowsill. 
Your books are still
on the shelves –
old friends
who keep me
and speak of you.

    I had a gut feeling this would get POTD Agnes!!! Son is travelling to the far East next Thursday after his initial time in one country he plans to venture further afield. Many congrats on POTD:-) hugs Jan xx

    Such a poignant piece that many can relate to and I've got a HUGE lump in my throat, I'm finding it the same Agnes... son left yesterday will be off traveling on a one way ticket, got to admit I had tears which is rare for me. Adding this gem to my faves:-) hugs Jan xx
