Silent Whispers Upon The Night - Poem by Gulliver Gimble

Silent whispers upon the night,
hang from stars of silver white.
Cling to dreams of heavy hearts,
wishful words from miles apart.

Across the sky blow winter winds,
bring others hopes around again.
Silent whispers that once belonged,
now a chorus in a winter’s song.

Broken hearts that never mend,
search for beauty at twilights dim.
A fragrant lily a single white,
carries silent whispers upon the night.

    Steve, your poem is terrific. The imagery sticks in my mind. Plus...
    that title is captivating and haunting at the same time. 'Silent Whispers
    Upon The Night' is like a breakthrough that comes to dispel and/or
    remove one from the shadows of despair. This is very nice.
