Silent Cries


I cried in the evening;
But no one saw my pain;
No one saw the anguish
In my heart.

I cried in the night;
But no one heard my suffering;
No one heard
The silent cries of pain.

I cried in the morning;
But -
The sounds of laughter;
the sounds of joy;
the sounds of love -
Overshadowed my pain and suffering;
And replaced them with
And Happiness!
And Joy!
And Love!
... And Peace!
