It is hard to listen to the silence that is left when someone dies. It is agonizing to feel the emptiness that once was filled with the uniqueness that no longer is. It is lonely to feel abandoned and alone, even in the middle of a sea of grieving souls.

LISTEN TO THE SILENCE

By Al Garcia

It is hard to listen to the silence that is left when someone dies.  It is agonizing to feel the emptiness that once was filled with the uniqueness that no longer is.  It is lonely to feel abandoned and alone, even in the middle of a sea of grieving souls.

Our tears deflect the pain we feel, while our bodies and our actions betray the frailty and fragility of our broken hearts. 

Death betrays and deceives without exception or concession.  And we are left to wonder why and ponder what is to come. 

And in the end, we are left alone to listen to the silence
