This is my second post for the Sunday Scribblings May 13th prompt: “Second Chance”. This is me asking for a second chance after my thoughtlessness.
Author’s note: This next short piece was written as an apology to my wife for one of the times I opended my mouth instead of my ears, and more importantly, my heart.
SONG OF LOVE
Sometimes, In the clatter of a thoughtless moment,
I forget to listen.
I fail to hear the tender lilt of our heartsong.
But when I am quiet and we are close,
this lyric of love is all I hear.
Please forgive my selfish noise.
Rejoin me in our sweet duet.
I miss your gentle voice.
