Silence Of Hope (poem)

Updated on October 9, 2013

He sat and listened to my songs of pain

And when I cried he washed away my tears

His silence seemed to lay claim to all fears

His silence filled the air with hope’s refrain

-

For I had fallen seriously ill

The doctors’ silence heightened my dismay

My world of friends seemed very far away

Except this one who would my darkness fill

-

But who was he who deep in silence waits

That shadow of a moment of the past

My eyes unclear of memories he cast

Yet through my heart a meaning he relates

-

To some unknown the soul of me was drawn

A silence of a nothing all around

Was then I heard familiar fateful sound

And I awoke to find that he had gone

      Deep, dark, and the pain is so isolating, something that cannot be shared.

      Amazing work, Martin.

      The music lent a sad, mournful setting for the poem.

      Pardon me, but you expertise is showing.

      Deep, dark, filled with extreme emotional impact. This poem, accompanied by the photo and the video has such a strong effect, it left me motionless for the longest time.
