The Silence

I can’t hear my mother’s voice anymore. It’s been this way for a while I guess… I just read a line that made me think this.

It’s the voice I held onto the most after her silence. I hear it now in my daughter. Me melting in her tones.

Even when I’ve had enough in any given moment, I don’t really want her silence.
