The Deafening Sound Of Silence

Dear Silent Caretaker, Today I noticed you as I sat awkwardly by myself in the large cafe eating lunch. I said nothing as you simply acknowledged my presence while my eyes followed your every move. You diligently cleaned, washed and wiped the machines and surfaces I use everyday in your absense. Today, however, you were present. I felt like an intruder. An awkward, silent, unappreciative intruder. At least that's what I recognized today. Everyday your work goes unnoticed by me. Yet everyday I eat on clean tables, drink out of clean mugs and walk on clean floors. I was speechless;  frozen with embarassment as my awkward silence became deafening. I wish I could take those moments back. I wish I said something, anything. I wish . . . .  -Dave
