Unsaid Words Can Speak the Loudest

I'm a freelance writer living in the beautiful river town of Mannum in SA, dreaming of the day I can retire from the 9-5 to write full time.

When we enter into a new relationship we want to know as much about our new partner as possible, and we want them to know us, too.

We've all heard countless stories of couples meeting and spending their first date talking into the wee hours of the morning. Then there are the phone calls. (‘You hang up.’ ‘No, you hang up.’) Sound familiar? Go on, admit it, we've all done it at one time or another. It’s cute and romantic and we wouldn't trade those days for anything.

But as a relationship develops, those long conversations can become less frequent – or disappear altogether, replaced by routine daily interactions. Does that mean the love is disappearing, too?

My husband was never very forthcoming with the romantic talk. His argument was that I should already know how he felt – that he shouldn't have to keep telling me, and in hindsight he was right. I know he loved me but my insecurity made me continually seek validation from him.

Now that he is no longer with us I take comfort in looking back over cards that he gave me for birthdays, Valentine’s day and anniversaries (yes, he always remembered!) and the letters he wrote early in our relationship when he worked night shifts as a nurse and had less time to spend with me. In these scribblings he conveyed thoughts and feelings that he was never able to say out loud.

My husband showed his love for me in a dozen small ways every day, even though at times there would be long periods of silence.

Spoken words can disappear as soon as they’re said but loving gestures, loyalty and faithfulness speak volumes, and echo long after we’re gone.
