In Silence, I found his words,
luring my solitude’s pain,
and lulling my senses to sleep..
I ‘ve watched him Growing,
growing Mature, familiar
And then growing fonder deep….
His tone, to my ears , becoming
Strange, and stabbing Me
He gave some wounds to Keep..
I walk having him beside,
leaving his body to his world
And I no more Weep…
For the answers which he gave
and the songs His closed lips sung
gave me strength to take A Leap…
