The rooms were full

of noise, and stuff, and music.

of laughter and words.

of clothes and books.

and unmade beds and phone calls.


Now they are empty.

the beds are neat and tidy.

There is no one to mess them up

except for an occasional visit.

The only things in the rooms are

memories, sunlight and dust.

the books are put away.

the phone rarely rings.


The house is quiet…

except for the sound of the two of us.

We are still here.

glad to be together still.

but all is much quieter

As our eyes dim

and our ears work harder to hear.


Our hearts are full.

We are grateful to GOD

for our daughters,

their husbands and

their children.

What a blessing!

God has given us a full life!
