Silence Begs to Be Broken

silence of a brand new morn

mourn the silence since Woody died

dyed to match the mood of the day

dey who understand me know

no, silence is not my enemy

in a me lies the answer

and sir, ..........................

and the silence begs to be broken

written Tuesday evening, April 3, 2012

Author's note: The sound of silence doesn't change. †It is what we attach to the silence which changes the experience of the silent moment. †Sometimes, the silence is deafening. †Other times, silence is golden as the sunbeam stretching across the horizon on a dewy, Spring morning, half hidden by puffy, white clouds.

And yet, the silence speaks of tender words of love spoken in echos of memories held forever in the heart. †Sometimes, when Woody and I were together, we were happily caught up in silence, cherishing the fact that we were together and words were inadequate to express the love that grew so beautifully between us. †And now, knowing no audible words will be spoken between us, I rely upon the silent memories of his tender, loving words to me, his only sister. †God, I feel so privileged to have the honor of knowing him for these precious moments since we first met in 2008. †As I hear the clicking of my fingers upon these keys, I am comforted as true silence embraces me and I am at peace. †All is well; as well as it can be.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
