3/30/2014Sunbeams strain to warm absent aches.
Pillows fluff to no comfort.

Pauses wait at doors for absent passersby.
Corners sit idle of occupants.

Shadows leave without casting.
Silence descends unbroken.

Strangers approach unheralded.
Friends depart ungreeted.

Sofas sigh at emptiness.
Rugs remain unrumpled.

Rattling pans incite disinterest
Bones lie bereft of biting.

Postboxes slip silently closed and wonder at the lack of barking.

What a beautiful poem and a lovely tribute to your sweet girl! And what a sweet story about your postman <3

I know you miss your darling girl deeply... but I know she lives on in your hearts and in your memories of 17 wonderful years spent together. **hugs** to all of you!
