Silent Whisper

I hear her whisper in the darkness
Sometimes in the light
I hear her giggle from beneath
the frilly dresses at Costco
Can I have one, Mommy?

She’s not really there
I silenced her voice
thirty-five years ago
But Jesus whispers, She’s with me


For Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub the word of the day is whisper. Head on over and check out the many Quadrilles offered by the regulars and maybe some newcomers.

  4. Profoundly deep and touches a memory in me. Personally for me the poem is more powerful without the last line but I understand the comfort it brings.

  5. So few words that take the reader on this journey — and then the beautiful last words of hope. Lovely.

  6. Whew. This punched me in the gut, and then in just one (last) line, brought me peace again. He does that, doesn’t He? Beautiful, Linda.
