Silence So Loud - Poem by Butterflies In My Belly Forever

Where once was the smell of love in the kitchen,
Is now filled with Silence So Loud.
Where once was the sound of love and laughter is now filled with the smell of emptiness...
and echoes that return what seems like forever.

There in the room where she took her last breath is the darkness that fills a thousand holes...
bits and peices of material things left somehow reveal the stories told.
The flashesof memories - of lives lived, hurts healed and loved ones there.
The air is so thick but so empty you feel like you're drowning.

Trying to feel her love,
Feeling my way around what seems to be bigger than life.
Glimpses of her smiles, Hints of her Grace,
I wish I could kiss her beautiful face.
But all that is left here is Silence So Loud.
