Sound of Silence

Living in a house

that has lost its soul,

loneliness has been

designated your new role.

The sounds of silence

fill every room,

the curtains pulled

just add to the gloom.

A house once filled

with laughter and light

has retreated into darkness

and given up the fight.

Solitude has been welcomed

through its door

now that no one

wants to visit anymore.

Life has stood still in

this house that was once a home

now the rooms are left

for the departed to roam.

  1. It’s a phase of life we all go through and I am hoping I embrace the alone when it’s my turn. I have older family who are changing the way they think as they do that, because they want their independence. I hope I remember their courage and make it mine.
