A Silent Cry - Poem by Lesa MRK

I hear your voice,
Though you do not speak,
You have a longing.
Trust in love you seek.

At night you cry,
But there is no one to hear-
No one to listen,
To that dream you hold dear.

Most people don't care,
So they do not see your tears.
They cannot hear your silent cries,
Nor sense your deepest fears.

You live in a constant shadow,
Of what tomorrow will bring.
Will it bring joy or laughter,
Or teardrops that will sting?

Today I heard the silent cry,
An echo from far, far away.
It made me cry, too;
I didn't know what to say.

You are surrounded by people,
Yet you are all alone.
They do not see the teardrops,
Which cut you to the bone.

They cannot feel the anger,
Seething within your heart.
They cannot feel this pain,
Tearing you apart.

You did not choose this fate,
But it's hardships you must face,
The silent cry is a longing,
To escape to a safer place.

The past cannot change,
You cannot change who you are.
There's one thing you can do,
You can try to heal the scar.

I am here to help you;
In my love you can rely,
In a silent cry.

(1987)

    'I am here to help you, in my love you can rely...' is something that gives assurance of care and hope to one having a silent cry. To hear someone say this meaningful words will greatly help the person in pain and find consolation having learn that someone still care. Beautiful poem, thanks for sharing. Top mark. (Report)Reply

    I like how you say you heard the cry,
    but that no one can see the tears.
    People on the outside want to have there
    say, but can't see in your heart
    or see what you feel
