After raising a family, running a child care program, and being married for over 27 years. It’s been three years now that I’ve lived alone for the first time in my life. While there are definitely ups and downs, positives, and negatives. One of the hardest things to get used to has been the silence. For some reason, the silence has felt especially loud this weekend, so I wrote a poem about it.

The Silence

The silence

Is deafening.

The silence

Is loud.

The quiet

Is too much.

There should

Be sound.
