Silence has been my best friend
Ever since my parents passed away,
I know it better than nobody else.
Silence has so many levels
The one that let you hear leaves rustling,
Or the insects fluttering their wings,
the constant ticking of the clock ,
Or the beating of a beloved's heart
along with the silence of your own thought.
But the deepest silence is the silence that's so complete
that you can hear the spirits talking to you
Asking you let go of the denial that is bleeding you.
