A Silent, Whispered Prayer




Like a softly flowing stream
The raindrops from your eyes did fall
As the quill ceased its fluttering motion

A heart filled with such joyous misery
Lay broken and torn upon the soil
Unable to beat its final summoning

Restless your dreams did ponder
Like a child, quivering in the cold
Questioning the reasons why
You were left starving and alone

Was it such a mortal sin
To love so deeply
As to cherish each teardrop
And each line upon her face?

As the seasons slowly retrace their journey
Your heart will begin to heal
And forget the stains left behind
By each self-inflicted wound

May the sea like a soothing angel
Guide your soul to its rebirth
And her voice echo back lullabies
To mend your broken wings

I will hold you with my soul
And with songs command the skies
Just so that once,
You could hold the moon within your hands

And like raindrops, sail
From behind the veil of night
May it be my tears which fall
While your face shines with delight

For I would give away my joy
Just to see you smile
And shed a thousand drops of blood
To grant your heart respite

As the quill begins to speak once more
What is seen in lucid dreams
I can scarcely catch my breath

For each word etched deep within my soul
Was written by your own hands

And every hope I ever spoke to you
Was a silent, whispered prayer

    “May it be my tears which fall /
    While your face shines with delight”
