The Loudest Silence

I’ve been away from home for eleven days now.  For a homebody, that feels like forever.

Most of those days I’ve been surrounded by unfamiliar people and lots and lots of noise.

But in the midst of all that activity and sound, there has remained a quiet spot deep in my spirit that holds space for Dominic.

No matter how frantic, how deafening or how crowded things get, his absence is the loudest silence I hear.  

days when your absence is the loudest silence ive ever heard

  1. Yes, the silence is deafening.
    A moment or an hour would never suffice, but I certainly wouldn’t turn it away. But I want you back forever Liam, my Golden Boy. Your absence is in every fiber of my being every moment of my life. This pain will go on and on till the day I die. Look after your Brother, Liam if you can, for when he lost you he also lost is mam. I love you both equally, but I am different now, I can’t even remember who I was before. I feel so guilty that I am not the mam you both once knew. But there is nothing I can do. My heart is shattered and can never be put back together. When they took you they took everything too. I love you beyond any earthly words and your Brother too. Mam xxx
