Silence

Posted: March 26, 2013 by lukacsbetsy in BetsyL

Within the silence I hear your whisper

Like it was only meant for my ears to hear.

Am I really that important to you?

That you would hear me before anyone else would be willing to?

I turn my ear to hear your voice so clear.

When silence is present

all else is sustained.

Time stops, the earth hushes, the still small whisper is the only life painted

and it’s your name.

    I like the line “Time stops, the earth hushes, the still small whisper is the only life painted…”

    Betsy, this poem is beautiful. I like the line “Within the silence I hear you whisper, Like it was only meant for my ears to hear.” That line is so powerful. It sets the tone for the rest of the poem, and it grabbed my attention. This is a wonderful piece.
