Silence falls like a familiar friend
And here I am alone again
Listening to the sounds I can’t quite hear
Musical notes that are still unclear.
Instinct tells me words will come
Time will reveal what is yet unknown
Truth rushes at me like a cold, hard stone
Breaking my heart and delivering pain
Tears all hidden, expression the same
Quiet reigns and the world rushes on
The silence grows louder
I strain to hear
Waiting for the moment when it all becomes clear.
