Do You Hear?

When we talk to you, do you hear?
When we cry, do you cry?
When we think about you, do you know?
When we scream, does it hurt your ears?
Where are you, son?
Are you with us all the time?
Do you have another job?
Have you returned?
Are you with angels?
Are you one yourself?
Are you with Grandma?
Are you with Ben?
Do you wonder what we mean,
When we say you’re not here?
Or that you left?
Do you wave your hands madly
Shouting, “But Mom and Dad, I’m right here!”?
So many questions
So many questions
