Listen To The Echoes

There is a strange stillness to my home.
An emptiness that feels like it shouldn't be here,
The place is too big and the rooms too quiet........

Where is everyone?
Why is it so still?
So very very quiet........

There are little hand prints on the patio door window and on the fish tank.
In the spare room there is that lovely smell of babies.
A lonely toy left under the sofa.......
It's not my imagination, they really were here, I have the evidence.
Proof, of a great 10days.

Where are they?
The little invaders of my heart,
not gone 24hours yet, but so deeply missed.

The house rang out to the sound of little chatter and laughter,
if I sit still long enough
listen hard enough,
I can just hear the echo of them.


  1. Awwww, you miss them. I enjoy having company in the house too. But after a period of time, I'm glad to have the house back to myself.

  2. They're there--in the heart.


    Is it a nifty toy, the one left behind?
