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! ❤️👍🏽
