Do you hear the whispers?

The words we never say

Lost in the winds of time

They float in and out

Of the caverns of our memories


Waiting for the time

When we will remember

When we look back

And wonder

What was

What is now

What could have been

 If only we said

What we wanted to say

Perhaps we would realise

That the ear was waiting

To hear those words

Yearning for the story

To be told


But the diminished heart

Fled that place

Too frightened to wait

In vain

For the words

That never came
