Empty Nest

Where laughter once sounded silence now lingers

Where smiles brightened the day, bare walls remain

Where slamming doors once rang their greeting, door knobs languish untouched

Where warm hugs once brought comfort, loneliness isolates

Where a Mother’s hand once labored, no child remains

Where contentment once lived, uncertainty now visits

Where purpose once breathed, questions prevail

Where tangible presence existed, memories now play

Where he was, he is no more, mournful heart it’s burden to bear
