If this House Could Talk

If this house could talk

Would it speak of

Family homes through the years?

Would its walls

Sing of memories made

Between the beams,

the “before’s” and “”after’s”

Between its rafters?

Would its floors uphold

Years of love

Built upon a

Foundation of trust?

 

Or if this house could talk

Would it speak of

Families torn apart by fear?

Would its walls

Scream of scars and dents,

Failings and endings

Within time spent?

Would its floors crumble

Underneath the weight

Of the sadness and regret

That can only come with age?

 

If this house could talk

Could it tell me

If there is anything left

Worth being saved?
