Waiting in Apparent Silence

Waiting in Apparent Silence

 

Some stand alone

Some huddle together

In profound numbers

 

They wait in apparent silence

 

Gaunt, skeletal ghosts

Of their former selves

Or what they could have been

 

They wait in apparent silence

 

Gentle eyes staring into the distance

They dream of greener pastures

They dream of caring touches

 

They wait in apparent silence

 

If we would but listen

We would hear that the silence

Is a soul-shaking roar

 

Beseeching us to be their voice

 

Let us be their voice

They are waiting
