How does a voice get lost?
Did you learn your silence?
Whatever killed the song
That you once lifted up?

I miss your voice, your cry
I miss the sound of joy
But also of sadness.

I wonder in the dark
I whisper your silence.
Losing you to my ears,
I cannot hear you now.

The silence you have left
Deafens me. Loneliness
Mutes all sound, all silence.
I can’t hear anything.

I miss your voice, your cry.
I miss your song of joy,
But also of sorrow.
