I WISH YOU COULD HEAR ME
I wish you could hear me and all I have to say.
I wish you could hear my soft whispers and voice.
I wish you could hear the birds, the rain, and the music.
I wish you could hear your brothers laugh, talk and chitter.
But I'm glad... glad you can not hear the loud world outside.
I'm glad you can not hear the horns, cars, angry voices, and thunder.
I'm glad you don't hear the me cry and all that I mourn.
You are lucky that you can see me, the clouds, and your toys.
And I'm grateful that you are happy and healthy.
I'm grateful you can dance, run, wrestle, and play.
I'm grateful you can smell the flowers, my perfume, and the treats
I'm grateful you can feel the grass, the snow, and the carpet beneath you.
Most of all... I'm glad you can feel the love I give to you.
