There is a silence
That must be heard
A silence so loud
It cannot be heard
There is a silence
We fear to hear
A silence when heard
Allows us to face our fears
There is a silence
That calls to us
A silence when answered
Requires no words
It is the silence of the empty cup
The cup of blessing when none was given
The cup of love that failed
The cup of bitterness drained
It is the soul unblest
Who blesses itself
Unloved, loves itself
In bitterness forgives

That silence hears
