Silent World


How do I imagine living in a silent world?
To never hear music or laughter or even crying
To never hear my mom call me her sweetie-be or to hear her say I love you
To never hear someone say happy birthday or even just a pain old hey
To see and feel and taste but never hear the beauties of this world
How do I imagine living in a silent world……a blind world?
How do I imagine living in a silent world….I can’t?

I want you to know
