Quiet as a Whisper

Quite as a whisper, you

silently slipped away.

We thought you were only

Napping to energize for the day.

But you were sleeping more deeply

than anyone can wake.

And now we spend our days missing

you and crying for your sake.

For such a sudden loss, there’s

just no way to prepare.

It’s  going to take a very long time

to accept that you’re not there
