Positive Sounds

I haven’t heard
you laugh in a while
or see your eyes
sparkle when you smile.

All along we’ve had
our ups and downs
but lately there
hasn’t been any positive sounds.

Have we become
strangers to each other?
passing by with
just a nod to one another.

To wonder if I am
the cause of this
is not a thought
I find easy to dismiss.

  1. I hope this is a fictional poem by a 50 year old poet. If not, I hope you will take the first leap of faith and hug that sweetheart next time you approach her in the hallway. Don’t walk on past! ❤️👍🏽
