Quiet Among Rubble

We sat here yesterday amidst the cool breeze I was cloaked in silence - mind and tongue. Opening my eyes in brief moments to see you sitting with me.

I collected a few words and said to you: "I'm so happy you're here with me."

I met your eyes for only a moment, and a trembled smile made a home on my face.

I closed my eyes again and turned from you. A release of tears stepped out from my eyelashes and dampened my face.

Heart full, I looked onto the landscape and was consumed in contentment.

I am truly grateful Marlies. Your presence and confidence has brought such grace to each day.

A week left here together, it will feel odd to be home. To not live every day with your laugh echoing mine.
