The Day They Stopped Singing...

Poem by Saurabh Som

The Day the music died




I cried...




All the Sounds were dead




The Sun Seemed dark




The world stopped




Death of a song...in my head




The only Sound I could hear




Was the Sound of Silence ringing...




The Music died before i knew...




The day they stopped singing...


-- by myself

    I have reflected on this piece... and I find it quite, quite beautiful and sadly peaceful - it leaves a vacancy of song in my own mind. Thank you. Regards AA Gordon :)(Report)Reply
