Reflections of My Heart

The Echo of Silence

The Echo of Silence

 In the winter
Of my life
I did not realize
There would be such strife

I was sure that you meant
the words that you said
I guess it was I
Your message misread

With my heart
I beg that you do not play
I am here for you
Always I will stay

The joy that makes
This old heart dance
But week in... week out
not even a passing glance

Oh mistakes have been made
but you cant cast the first stone
I truly pray those of your heart
Never leave you alone

They learn from your actions
So please beware
That you aren't left
with no one to care

My days are numbered
And when my time is done
I know it will be met
By a party of one

I should be used
to the ever present absence
I am always left
With only my echos of silence

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.

I smiled and said...

How do I choose between always and forever...

But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
