Your Voice

Your voice drifts in 
Softly, lingering in the air
Between me and the kitchen
  
It doesn’t matter
What words you speak
I am easily entranced 
  
It soothes me
Calming my ragged edges
Dulling the sharp pieces
  
Your voice has become
A sound that belongs
One that I’ll keep forever
  
I need it daily
On FaceTime calls
Morning and night
  
I need it daily
Recording at my desk
Absently coddling the kitties
  
My favorite way though
To hear your voice
Is with laughter woven through it
 
Meaningless jokes
Unstoppable giggles
And the sarcasm
  
Oh the sarcasm
The way you paint it in
Teasing me effortlessly
  
That’s how I know
That yours
Is the only voice for me
