Children splashing in a pool
Laughter of families - together
The hum of a refrigerator
All things that fill my ears today.
But I hear more.
I hear without my ears
My heart takes over
And sounds fill the room.
I 'hear' my husband's love in the walls of my home.
Even in death - he provided for me.
Love yells out from pictures
Smiles long gone but forever preserved.
My heart hears them.
My heart hears the laughter that was captured in that simple smile
I hear more.
God speaks his love in the wind, the hum of life filling this house,
the laughter of children, the gentle whine of a dog longing for her master's lap.
I hear it.
I am loved.
