My interpretation is that little talks tells the story of a widow who misses her dead husband.
She's trying to move on with her life, but it's complicated because 'an old voice' is holding her back.
She knows that he is gone, but the memories of her husband is still with her and it make her feel guilty for moving on.
This is why she is trying to make peace with the idea of letting him go and she'll meet him again some day
- a widow> a woman who's husband died
- to hold me back> stops me from moving forward
- to play tricks on you > to deceive you
- torn apart> separated
