If you’ve ever listened close to silence,
I’m sure that you heard ….
That gentle constant ringing,
In the space between two words.
When you really pay attention,
You find it’s not just ringing you hear,
Instead a whisper of words.
The world has left unsaid.
Its I love you never spoken.
And a brothers last goodbye,
That never had a chance to say,
As he watched his father die.
Its forgiveness never given,
And sorry never said.
That could have saved,
a boyfriends life.
If they’d known it could not wait.
Its a phase that might have helped
And secrets that could heal
Its words too scared to say,
Words that would save a life,
Or give them strength,
for one more night
The truth of how they feel
But you have the advantage
For your still here to speak,
So may you never leave words unsaid.
Words the world ought to know.
Before they just become,
Ringing in someone’s ear.
