Sounds and Silence

 

Silence has echoed within my soul,
louder than any voice in my ear

Its sorrow lives still,
small, in its own little corner

Reminding me, occasionally, of
loss never to be regained

Footsteps, voices of long ago
are heard there, as well

Echoes from the past,
keeping that silence at bay

Day Seventeen of 2016 NaPoWriMo.
