sometimes i think

sometimes i think
i hear your voice in the wind.
it is usually a whisper,
but i would know
that whisper anywhere,
soft and happy.
some days you are a butterfly
and if i work at it
i can keep up with your whimsy.
other days you are a hummingbird
and those days i can only watch
and only if you let me.

when you are silent i know
you're trying to think
so i settle into quiet
because my sounds only matter
when you give them to me.
