THE CABIN IS EMPTY

It’s a little quieter than yesterday as the sun is rising and a new day dawns…

The family vacation is over…the cabin is empty…everyone’s gone.

 

So Deborah and I decide to take a little walk…together hand in hand

thinking about our vacation and trying to understand…

 

about one of the wonderful components of love…how easily it abounds!

for even after everyone’s gone…we feel it all around.

 

We can still see the children playing…see them running up and down the stairs…

We can see the family seated around the table…we can hear their laughter in the air.

 

We can see all the things we did together…on a loop inside our heads

In some ways it’s like they never left…but are here with us instead…

 

Yes, another wonderful component of love…is how it reaches out so far…

and keeps you connected to a person…no matter where they are.

 

So as Deborah and I walk together

a little saddened at how fast the time has flown…

we know when we’re surrounded by so much love…

we will never be alone….

 

And I wonder if that’s why we hold onto one another 

and walk a little slower as we get older…

Because we savor the walk a little more…

 

knowing all the love that’s on our shoulders.
