This week the topic of WQWWC is silence
Silence is golden, say wise people. The significance of silence is most appreciated when you’re at the receiving end of a silent treatment. My late father never scolded us or got angry with any of us. He would become silent. We would rake our brains to remember what we did wrong. And when we realized where we erred, we would go to him and apologized. His silence truly said what his words never did.
My heart over flowed with words unsaid
What I felt, I could not express in mere words
Words felt inadequate to describe what I was feeling
And I couldn’t insult those feelings by using mundane words
Ever faced Those eyes which spoke volumes
Even though the lips remained silent
They begged you to understand without the need to say it aloud
And if you’ve missed the chance to listen to that silent appeal,
You will regret it for all time to come
For those lips won’t utter the words that might have
Helped you understand that pain in their heart.
