One word from you can fill me with such hope it feels as if my heart will burst into a million butterflies
Can you see me standing among them?
They are fluttering gently around me in a rainbow of colors
The sun is shining on my face as the breeze continues to twirl me
One day without words seems to drag on incessantly
Two days without words is an eternity
Three days and I feel myself beginning to fall apart
Four days and life has lost meaning
Five days and panic has set in, where have you gone?
Six days and I am frightened. As my chest begins to tighten, I fear I will never hear from you again
One week, or has it been a thousand years
Time is standing still
Ever so magically it appears
A word, a sentence, maybe even a paragraph
Life has begun once more
It’s the harmony to complete the perfect melody
I have saved all of these words
And if the day comes that words are no longer given to me…
I shall not cry, but be grateful for the beautiful experience that you chose to give if only for a short time……exclusively to me.
