It was one thing when you fealt
you were unheard amid the cosmos
and echoes out unto eternity.
It was also another when you heard
the earthquake and fire and thunder.
It was another when you heard only silence
despite the chaos of the flesh
of humanity in tumult about you.
It was yet another thing when, in silence,
and all had forgotten you and left you
alone in silence
that one who always remembered you
found you where you searched last
and waited patiently to speak
with the gentlest voice
of love for you beyond the silence.
