The Never Hour

If that proverbial never hour

Did occur

I would be sitting on the edge of my seat

I would exclaim

I love you!

Tell me everything!

Then listen like I have never heard before.

Empty Chair

But the chair remains empty

And the hour is never.

But still I exclaim

I love you!

And one day

I will tell you everything.

    This never hour may turn into a maybe time, Colleen. I hope listening to whoever it is will reciprocate and listen to all you have to give and share. xo

    • Well, the ‘never hour’ I mean because I can’t ever have that hour. My father’s birthday would have been tomorrow. It’s one of those reflections of ‘wish we had another hour’. šŸ™‚

    The other person may be making their way to you even as we speak.

  5. I love you too Colleen!! Now where to start?

  6. This is sad but at least hopeful! I hope that person is seeking you too to talk to you!

    • I hope he is waiting any way. We’ll never get to talk, here, again. It’s about my father who passed away years ago Priceless. I can’t help but reflect on him on his birthday tomorrow.

      • Oh, I’m sorry Colleen. That has to be very hard. But I believe there will be a day that you and he will have that conversation. I do believe that!

      • My dad passed away in 1998. He lived his last six months in a nursing home because he was so sick with cancer. I went to see him every day after work and we would sit outside and talk. I wouldn’t trade those moments for anything. I’m sorry you are missing your dad so much.

        • Thank you Priceless. I think we’ve “talked” about this before. I remember loving you going to sit with your dad. And how that was different than your previous relationship with him. And now, you will always have that and how much it meant to him. ā¤

    Beautiful yet sad. One day you will and likely he will tell you he was always there as you sat. :hugs:

    Oh, boy. Colleen – I totally understand. You have sketched a picture that will be forever etched in my mind. The empty chair where you Dad – my Dad – would have once sat… to talk about life… to share their wisdom. I am sorry I have missed your Dad’s birthday but will raise a toast to him tonight in his honour. He must have been amazing as he certainly raised an amazing daughter. You – his reflection – are now in his chair and I am in yours. And your never is my now. Thank-you.
