Mothering in Silence by Soulez

  • As we sat watching, but not watching the tv, she suddenly shared her sadness over the day’s activities, as tears welled and then ran, followed by the sobs and gasps for air. Unable to think of anything to say to make things better, I listened in silence, even after the tears stopped while my tears welled then ran followed by sobs within.
