Listen Closely - Poem by Myrtle Glo Oliquino

Listen closely to the quiet of the night
Can't you hear the lonely sounds of broken hearts?
Pay attention to all the hearts struggling to fight
Can you hear the silent weeping as their lover departs?

Feel the mist of the evening breeze
Can't you feel the traces of bitter tears?
As the wind blows them away, be sensitive please
Can't you feel the chill coming from their fears?

Take a look at the stars twinkling up above
How many tear-streaked faces out there are looking
Wishing and praying that someday soon they'd find love?
Don't you just wonder how many hearts out there are breaking?

Listen closely I desperately beg you
Tell me what to do just to make you see all the pain
If you can't, then just take time to feel me near you
Can't you feel my pain? Won't you ever love me again?
