Please help: Should the title be 'In Silence' or as is?

As he lay dying


She stroked his hair


In silence


After he trembled and


Breathed one final time


She took his thin hands,


Still warm,


And folded them across his stomach


In silence


The way she left the room

I found a man/neighbour on the floor dying,nothing in his eyes, no reponse I dived through his window, kept his airwaves free. Cut a long story short, he was expected to die that night, but by Gods Grace I got there in time to give primary aid and the paramedics and NHS are just brilliant...He's now off life support, thinks everyones in his But I've seen the old feller and by the grace of God he will be fine... And of course living here we get all our medical care free....

Well Timed poem..

I personally like 'In Silence' for the title. It seems more fitting.

An excellent and moving write my friend...I like the title you have, it allows the reader to ponder the questions...How do you spell love, what is love, or how do we measure love? While your poem solves the mystery and questions with an unexpected answer! Enjoyed my friend, leave it as!

This is a great story poem. I wouldn't use the title "In Silence" because it is used alot in the poem and might be too obvious of a title. That's just me though. Anyway, really liked this one.

Exceptional poetry. In silence she left the room, but inside she was in turmoil. She had lost her best friend, companion, the love of her life. So much can be read between the lines in this excellent write.

Many blessings,
