Only I Hear Only I hear the air kisses and giggles I missed When I was too busy marking off my checklist Only I hear the words he might have said As my father fought for life on his death bed Only I hear time laughing as it slips away Adding wrinkles and gray hair into the fray Only I hear my sorrows as they gather around Their cries and moans create the saddest sound Only I hear the moments I threw away like trash Because I didn’t understand or was too rash Only I hear the things I wished I could redo I would cherish the time I hurried through I would stop and listen to my babies coos and cries I would linger over conversations, hugs and sighs I would stop and smell the flowers and fresh air I would accept my failings and loose every care So the next time I think I’m the only one who hears I won’t be ashamed to expose my heart or show my tears
