Prose Header


by Marc Carver

There is nothing to beat this total silence,
not even the murmur of a heartbeat,
no one close.
Only my son in bed, fast asleep,
done the night shift, as he always does.
I worry for him
but know that only time and trust change things.
There are no mistakes,
maybe not even free will
or options.
All there is is this silence
that tells me everything will be okay.
