Hush tones resound around me
Whispers of my sadness
Abound inside my soul
They speak of his departure
Not knowing
What to say
How to handle my tears
When I cry for my boy, gone
Lost in their whispers
How long shall I listen
As they whisper
Not understanding
That sadness is part of my being now
I have long lost this battle
Of calming my grieved heart
Should I not speak of this grief
Should I leave my grief
At the door of forgotten
They speak of my boy’s existence
Like it was a myth in a story
A story I have had to relive
Each day my heart beats
Grief will not stop whispering to me
Through those that whisper about my boy
