No News Of You.

I read the paper, hope for news of you.
Check the classifieds and comics with care
to find not one word, one mention, of you.
Now the obits come last, but you're not there.
Without a care I run my hand across
the page where, with words, silence rules supreme.
With no news of you I sleep and I dream.

Sometimes thinking dream rather than nightmare can keep us from despair. You know what the old saying goes..........no news is good news There must have been a reason for that saying.
