Treasure Island

TheSilent Loudness


Feel


I hope to articulate emotion into the language of your mind
I hope that you will cry, laugh, or love
If only for a moment, to be with that one for a fragment of time
Will be worth it, I trust you know who I speak of

Step into someone else's shoes and cry for those you have or have yet to meet
To be a widowed mother, to outlive your husband and little boy
See what it's like to go three days and not eat...
To be a new father, with a sick wife and new child, and into far lands deployed
The pain that you would be in, I can't even begin to imagine

Laugh with old friends, who you haven't seen in years
Share how far you've come in life since then
But I pray: when the day is done, whisper in their ears
How much they mean to you, for you don't know when and if you'll meet again
You'll cry with tears of sheer laughter so much your sides will forever hurt

Love the person that answers your call with a smile, eager to hear about your day
Who will take a bullet for you, though it splits through all their tendons
They'll do so eagerly and many a time, though the lead bullet pierces their brain
Their heart will live on for you, though their body's life ends
Their heart is yours to keep, treasure it every day with which you still breathe

I hope you shed a tear, or had a chuckle
Or felt the heart of a lover which bleeds for no other

Embrace your Emotions, the powerfull surge
Never give up till you find them, no matter how dangerous the search
