Lonely house again

The house is quiet
The rooms are vacant
The noises are gone
The food is there
The kitchen is clean
The laundry is done
The shoes are in place
The chores are mine again
The world is back to normal
in this little place of mine

Back to a world of no children
or sounds
or fighting
or messes

my heart is lonely
My heart is sad
I miss them oh so much

unless you've lived this life of mine
you would never understand
but thank you for your empathy anyway.
