Your Name, Sherry

Your Name
by Sherry

I speak your name
My eyes well up
My heart aches
For you can never answer me

I hear your name
It catches me
Makes me stop and pause
I know it's not your face
I will see

I see your name
I am filled with wonder
I am filled with love
I know you are with me
You know you are loved

Your name
As beautiful as you
As special as you
Music to my ears
Even with the pain
Even with the sadness
Because you are mine
And will always be



about the poet.
Sherry describes herself, "I have been married for 10 years to a wonderful husband, a mother of three, one in heaven. Our world was forever changed when our twin babies were born at 28 1/2 weeks due to an incompetent cervix. Our twin baby boy Brandon died shortly after birth from complications of a collapsed lung, and Sophia stayed in the NICU for 48 days. I mostly write about Brandon and my journey in this world without him. It's the only thing I have that's devoted to him. It helps me heal, while keeping his memory alive." Sherry blogs at Remembering Brandon.
