113. Never be loved

You thought you could never be loved,
And so you sat far away in the corner.

You thought you could never be heard,
And so you tried to best to disappear forever.

You thought you could never be seen,
And so you walked further and further,

Not knowing I fell in love with you,
And into the breeze your name would I whisper.

12. Unseeing the seen

I cannot unsee your pain
now that your tears have fallen,
I cannot unread your words
now that your voice has spoken,
I cannot undo my mistake
now that your existence is orphaned,
I cannot unknow this truth
now that my eyes are open.

7. Quiet


Quiet, child.
Whisper not a sound.
Your tears have been seen,
And we weep for you.

Rest your voice now,
We will speak for you.
Quiet, child.
Whisper not a sound.
