A Silent Lament.....

When the music fades and the lights go out,

when the last labored breath's exhaled;

is there a sound, a loud crescendo,

as the person's face is paled?

I think that there is, though not all hear,

for the sound is silently felt;

the loss for the one who has now passed on,

is a hit that's below the belt.

The surge of grief, a gut-wrenching blow,

is something we have to go through;

yet it's the sound of silence as life's notes fall,

that weeps for the person we knew.....
