In Silence

This is a new poem that came to me yesterday morning, checking my email, seeing who’s email that was once there a lot wasn’t there any more. A pity. So this one’s for you.


In Silence


I met you through songs

In a bar full of happy noise.

You got up and sang

And forgot the words

And hearing you

So did my heart.

I heard your silent music

Stranger than the sounds

We played together at night,

Rehearsing our short chorus

To the tune I thought you liked.

We sang together and talked about

The Book of Love and long ago

And touched on God above

And if the Bible told us so.

We sang through our songs.

You left me in silence.


(c) 2014 Carl Bennett
