This Silence

She remains a silent mystery to him
as her silence moves from deep within
enveloping the world in peace and love
for just one brief and lasting moment
when nothing need be said
in this silence that so perfectly doth speak

He feels weak
next to the strength of her endurance
He knows not what to say
and so he fades away
quietly into the starlit skies
to try to find the reason why
she had to go so silently away

But this silence, deep and lasting
rings so loudly in his ears
he cannot sleep
What was it that he took away from her?
if not the fear of light itself

As quietly, so quietly, she waits
for love to come and carry her away
without a want, without desire
for pure white fire
has burned the pain away . . .
