Crescendo Of Silence


How wonderful her life would be

To feel pure love her greatest plea

To feel the warmth, the glow the fire

The welcomed hug we all desire


Watching, waiting, day is long

He listens to the birds sweet song

He wishes he could fly away

And join their freedom on this day


The silence oh crescendo tone

She wants to dance and sing not moan

He wants to walk, to stroll away

Far from this nursing home today


The sad, sad truth we can’t deny

These lonely folks will make us cry

What can I do? Can I be one?

Who won’t forget them;  be their Sun.

    A treasure people chose to lose! The giving ageless.
