“Silence”

Pen and paper

 

 

 

 

I have written you
Many poems, Daddy
And a eulogy, unthinkable
Though the act of writing it was
But have I really said anything?
No
Not really
For words cannot really capture
What we feel
Words cannot plumb our emptiness
Words cannot exhaust our grief
From the very beginning
The only fitting responses were
Tears
And silence
