There is a sadness in my heart today,
Like a weight that wont go away,
We argued recently over something stupid,
Trying to make amends is the hardest bit.

How can I reach out to you if you wont talk?
How do I let you know I love you so?
Your silence hurts me to a core deep down,
I would gladly be swallowed deep underground.

The sadness will go away one day,
When we learn what to say,
The things that matter without anger,
Until that day the sadness hungers.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
