Just Write {18}

January 16, 2012

I came across this:

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you’re the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.

ba boom ba boom ba boom…

I guess I’d change that to, you’re one of the only ones who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside. Since there are three children that have been there. Putting it that way makes three sound like not very many at all. Just three people, the only ones who will ever know my heart this way. Only three, on all the planet in all my days.

So I have three to think of, as I sit here and listen to their sounds all around me. The boys discussing a made-up game of cars that race in just this way and in just this time. And Elsie rolling around me in her little baby walker, garbly-gooking her infant language. I think of them all the time, if I can hear them or not and my anxiety wants me to believe it’s all too much. Too much to do, to much to say, too much to stay awake for, to much to do.

But there are only three. Even when there is too much, there are just these few. These few are the only ones and I can’t try to describe the strength of this love ever again without thinking of my heart beating for them now and back inside. They are the only ones that know and I want to keep telling them and that’s enough.

ba boom ba boom ba boom…
