Silence are words that never reach the listener’s ears,
But the words are always being spoken.
Are you listening when they speak?
Have you silenced your ears to the words that we speak?
Open your eyes,
Look straight through hers,
Can you see her true words?
Often you say I am listening,
But when you do not understand!
When you do not respond!
When you do not care!
And only just decide to walk on while nodding your head,
What was it that you missed,
When her tears rolled down,
To fall upon her quivering lips,
As each word recklessly ran slipping from her mouth.
Silence, were the words!
That you never received from your wearied listening face.
Did you miss it again?
