Silent Tears

default ©

Published: March 2008

I sat quietly by my window, as the rain fell outside,
As a single tear slid slowly down my cheeks,
The screaming sound was there again,
Oh, those loud screaming, shouting voices.
Another single tear slid slowly down my cheeks,
As I thought, Oh daddy! Oh Mummy!
What have I done to cause those loud, screaming voices?


I looked out of the window,
The darkness outside has now become my life.
I thought of happier times when we used to play,
laugh and talk as one. Oh, how I miss those days.
Another tear slid slowly down my cheeks
As I thought, oh Mummy, Oh daddy,
Why has darkness now become my life?
Oh Daddy, Oh Mummy
What could I do to make this darkness go away?


Another tear slid slowly down my cheek,
these silent tears are now my life,
Smiling and laughter are foreign to me
Oh Mummy! Oh Daddy!
The world seems too big for a small person like me
I looked up at the stars and asked the Lord to please,
take this pain away.

It's amazing how close to the truth this is. I've felt exactly the same way that the kid does. "What have I done to cause those loud, screaming voices?" I've thought almost that exact same thing. I never really thought anyone else had that painful thought run through their head too. It makes me wonder: How many other people had to experience that also? Don't answer that, because something's telling me I really don't want to know.
