Their tears fall in silence


Their tears fall in silence

Or stay silted up behind eyes that cannot cry

Griefs they buried long ago

Lead to a hijacked brain

And the pain and confusion of that

Can on some days be so overwhelming

How can we help them begin to break the silence?

To reach out from deep inside

A wounded or broken soul

Healing only begins with the telling and feeling

The difficult uncovery of such painful lost truth

And even though the deepest wounds may never be fully repaired

Always and forever leaving a scar

Just maybe in being spoken

They can be opened and cleased

And some of the poison driven out

The ones who weep in silence

Well please remember

To send them a prayer

For we know

We too were once the ones who wept in silence

And so it is our responsibility

To speak, to share, to encourage and to care
