Hush Now

Hush now,
can you hear them?
The multitude of tiny screams,
each one the death of a
love in pain.

Hush now,
can you hear them?
The crying voices of a million souls,
each one lamenting the passing
of a heart in shame.

Hush now,
can you hear them?
The outpoured grief of uncounted lives,
each one mourning for a
love not tamed.

Hush now,
can you hear them?
