A Silence

A sweet silence belongs to me
a silence of love and serenity

setting me free

A silence in which I find my Lord
a silence struck with a heavenly chord

a stillness a soul affords

A simple whisper travels there
easing every worry and care

laying my heart bare

You are loved I am told
a place of warmth never cold

even as I grow old

Embrace the silence and hold it tight
it will be there in the night

bringing harmony with light
