Silence

Silence hath become my only enemy
Destroyer of the secrets of my heart
Silence hath become my only betrayer
Bearer of my private loss and pain
Silence hath become my only doubt
Wherein truth is transformed into uncertainty
Silence hath become my only sorrow
A desolation everlasting until the end of time.

Silence hath become my only friend
Keeper of the secrets of my heart
Silence hath become my only confident
Bearer of my private hopes and joys
Silence hath become my only faith
Wherein the power of truth is omnipotent
Silence hath become my only love
A flame everlasting until the end of time.
