Subj: Emptiness in me


There is,
an emptyness,
a gaping hole,
a silence that I can not overcome alone.

I remember,
when we were home,
always a comforting quiet,
while we studied, and read, and defended.

I miss,
everything about you,
the warmpth and comfort,
the warm smile you cast upon me.

There are,
echoes in my mind,
a silence that burns,
a love that yearns to hold your hand.

There is,
no homestead to return to,
no House to rely on,
no parents to call to my side.

I gave,
the children to the flame,
and still hold on,
to the hope they too may return.

There is,
an empty silence,
my mind eerily quiet,
where there was once wampth.
