Silence, true in its own power
For who can say it is not so,
When words are forgotten
And the emptiness is yet to be
Among those not yet born

The silence of unspoken thought
Perhaps known as no thought at all
Yet it is not rightly so
For words are not feeling
Unless they are spoken with such
And feeling does not rely
On the spoken word alone
Nor even a whisper of certainty
For silence prevails in the heart

Therefore let it be
My words hold not the truth
Which my soul so easily giveth
For they cannot say
What ails the lonely heart,
Nor what songs the joyous sing
In their happiest of hour

If only we listen to the silence,
Instead of spoken word
