Nothing more to say

Updated on July 7, 2011

Nothing more to say

People seem to never know

When there is nothing more to say

I remember walking from the graveside

Of a girl I took for granted

Someone I never realized that I loved

Until it was too late to tell her so

And then there was nothing more to say

I have had conversations with people

Lasting from the appoach of night

Until the sun began to rise

And then we sat silently when we realized

That there was nothing more to say

A child is killed

A soldier dies in some far off land

And we see the families mourn their loss

But then there is nothing more to say

So when you see me sitting all alone

And if you do not hear from me for a time

Do not wonder what it is

That you may have said or done

Which makes me want to enjoy a time of silence

And do not think for a moment that I do not care at all

But tell yourself that for the time

For that particular moment

I am lost in my own thoughts

My wonders about the world around me

and I simply feel that at that time

There are no need for words at all

And there is nothing more to say.

      Very true, Imichael, and they seem to pick the wrong places to have conversations too often, like at funerals, during an exiting movie you are watching, or even when you are trying to do something you need to concentrate on.

      A lot of people would do well to learn when there is nothing more to say. Too many incessant talkers in the world.

      This is very good.
