Deafening

Deafening

A Poem by Sarah Marie

Silence-
Sweet serenity,
Wrap me in your soft embrace;
Sing for me a lullaby
So that not only I
But all the world may drift
To sleep-sweet sleep. 
Peace is never far behind,
A mother to your children
Who rocks the babes 
In her nurturing arms;
Sent from Heaven
To the world, chaotic 
In careless comparison,
May you both reign.
This world needs to grow quiet,
To become hushed suddenly-
Thankfully-momentarily
So that it might realize
What it is missing by speaking
And living and breathing
When it could be listening
To the sounds of eternity’s 
Most beloved child-
Silence.

Welcome! Great job! X)
Love this so much...actually calmed me. I was just getting pretty well, sort of rowled up, and then I read this and I was instantly calm. Thank you :)

Yay! :) I wasn't thinking this piece was so great, but I am glad it had a good effect on you!
Yes, oh how the world screams at us every day, and how we need to escape to the simplicity of silence. Letting your thoughts sing to me even now after a long day.
