When Silence Speaks


When silence speaks,
it tells a tale;
of greives,
of pains,
of promises unkept,
of dreams unfulfilled;
louder than words
it speaks,
deeper than voice
it sounds.

When silence speaks,
it tells a tale;
of betrayal,
of fear;
of a heart heavy with burden,
of a spirit broken and bruised;
louder than words
it speaks,
deeper than voice
it sounds.

When silence speaks,
it tells a tale;
of vengeance,
of hate;
furious and harmed as wind,
dangerous and wild as fire;
louder than words
it speaks,
deeper than voice
it sounds.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
