Sacred Silence

By Ari J. Schaffer

 

As I pull myself out of the depression

I had cried out all I could

Sadness over a loss of a friend

But as I turned and took in a deep breath

You come with a bigger loss than mine

You say to me that you had no clue

Who else to go to and asked if I ever

Lost someone to suicide...

 

A sacred silence

A tiny tear

I weep for you

And no longer for me

 

A sacred silence

Extending love

I listen now

No longer the speaker

A loss like this can gain no words

In a moment for sacred silence

Silence for you

 

Listening to you now of trauma so deep

You can't sleep; you dream of it

A grief over a loss of a friend

But as I hear and stay awake for you

You unload it all and I don't know...

You say to me that you had no clue

Who else to go to and though I was there

I wish I'd done more for you

 

 

A sacred silence

A tiny tear

I weep for you

And no longer for me

 

A sacred silence

Extending love

I listen now

No longer the speaker

A loss like this can gain no words

In a moment for sacred silence

Silence for you

 

Not much more can one do

Not much more can one say

(Let there be a sacred silence!)

But a loss like that is hard to go through

My friend, I guess all I can say

Is that you can't avoid the grief

(Let there be a sacred silence!)

It'll take time to heal

It'll be hard and won't be brief

The pain is something real

But you gotta have that sacred silence

 

A sacred silence

A tiny tear

I weep for you

And no longer for me

 

A sacred silence

Extending love

I lost you now

No longer able to speak

A loss like this can gain no words

In a moment for sacred silence

Let there be a sacred silence for you!

Let there be a sacred silence to heal!

Let there be a sacred silence

A sacred silence for you!
