i've written before
about The Silence

when my dad was dyin'
and i was tryin'
not to be cryin'
just lyin'
and liein'
with my Self

now his books read
he be dead
led wherever the dead
are led

i be by my Self
in another space
seems like outter space
it's so quiet
the silence
is deafinin'

i can hear the dog
next door
when he scratches
i can hear the cat
when she purrrrsss
i can hear the leaves fall
i can hear it all

there
in The Silence
i never heard before

i can hear the closing of a Door
i can feel the mouse
back at my old house

i can smell my mom
i can tell the aftershave
my dad had
makes me sad
for all that i had
makes me glad
for all that i had

now lost
payin' the cost
of
The Silence

I'm so very sorry for your loss. You're right though, The Silence does cost way more than we are willing to pay.
