Everybody Has A Story~by Karin Bole Tupper



Everybody Has A Story


I whisper “I love you” into the silence that surrounds me

I’m not sure why I do it

Nor do I know where it comes from

There is no face or name that elicits it

This spontaneous mouthing of these particular words

I wondered tonight

As they spilled as effortlessly as my first breath

Gently pushing aside the silence

Like a curtain

Like the curtain of snow that is falling endlessly

Perhaps a tiny spark in my heart

Doesn’t want my lips to forget

How to form those words

Or how sweet love tastes

Just in case

Just in case…
