The Walls Are Filled With Whispers

I hear them all the time
never able to make out
what they are saying

sometimes they wake me up
in the middle of the night
like cries for help

many years ago this house
burned to the ground
and a ten year old boy died in the fire

we have often caught a glimpse
of a ghostly figure
it means us no harm and we have no fear

the whispers in the walls
could be the sounds of the family
talking as they sit at the dinner table

they could be the joy and excitement
of opening presents on Christmas morning
but I believe there is more to them

I believe they are the whispers
of friends and family members
expressing their grief of the boy’s death

every building has a history
and they all hold memories
with walls filled with whispers

The whispers want to be heard
listen to the walls
they are filled with whispers

  1. I think it would be interesting to learn the history of my house. I know it is a 100 year old house, my folks moved in back in the 60s so there are a lot of unknown years still. This was beautiful Walt!
