Have you ever really felt the silence?

silence of a predator in wake of its prey,
silence of a mother guarding her sleeping child,
silence of a proud father watching his son go out in this world,
silence of a sinner in penance.

Have you ever really heard the silence?

silence of a woman cheated,
silence of a greaving family,
silence of the couple in each others arms,
silent tears of repent,

Have you ever really lived the silence?

silence of living the beautiful moments of your life again,
silence of witnessing the love of your life walk away,
silence of feeling your life slip away,
And finally the silence of resting n peace.

silence is beautiful,
silence is lonely,
silence is anticipation,
silence is desolate,
silence is tranquil,
silence is harmony,
silence is the stillness of mind body n soul,

This silence is mine.
