Felt but Unheard

Fay Slimm.



Felt but Unheard.

Here I am
inside your stillness and before more grief breaks
I will stop swell of teardrops.

I see your distress and shall melt it away. 

Here I walk 
before hours of darkness and as first star appears
I will share every twilight

I stand, a whisper away so listen and hear.

Here I lie 
betwixt your sobbing and defeated sense.
I will in empathy act. 

I taste the heartache of your nightly unrest.

Here I sit 
viewing your need and knowing your dreams
I am here with much caring.

Felt but unheard I see each breath you breathe.


Here I wait until

love finds a way

and it will.

    Yes, true write Fay.
    When hitting the bottom of the barrel, the only way left is upwards - hopefully!
    No, no, Fido, I didn't say hitting the bottom of the bottle. He's a one. He gets a bit confusedsh with my alliterationsh! Hic!

    “Here I wait until
    love finds a way
    and it will.”

    The simple, gentle yet unwavering resolution of these lines—what a beautiful way to put this sentiment.
