Silence is a product 
of all the songs
the high notes and low
the impossible mix
of birth and death
the concert of pauper and king
blend of unvanquished yesterdays
and impossible tomorrows;
silence is voice
cutting across memory 
navigating disbelief 
the marriage of the inevitable
with the fervent belief of immortality;
he’s gone
and in going
turned a country into a song
lined with the most transparent
of tears
music that drips
from life-edge and heart
so delicate
it’s called ‘silence’
for lack of better word
to describe 
a voice that’s gone
but stays

and stays.

  1. I like to think that some kind of words and voices are eternal , it cannot escape from the phenomena of impermanence though . Agreeing with voice that's gone but stays and stays .
