Searching for Answers

Your eyes light up,
with a deep, rolling laugh.
Circling around the room,
animated, full of life,
as you share another story.
I search your face for answers,
as I interrupt to ask about dinner.
You frown, wave me away,
turning your back,
cradling the phone to your ear,
and let out another laugh.
Talking to her again,
just a friend
Yet I search your face for answers. . .
and find none

That caused some painful memories of my own to resurface. Hugs, Berlie, hoping for the best for you. Well-written, powerfully felt.
