Tell Me

Tell me the sound of lonliness?
The sound of unshed tears?
Tell me the sound that anger makes?
Or a childs nocturnal fears?

Tell me the sound of grief or sorrow?
The sound of darkness? Pain?
Tell me it will be alright tomorrow?
Tell me it won't happen again?

Tell me the sound that grass makes?
Or the sound of a flower?
Tell me the sound of happiness?
Not the sound of an empty hour?

Then you told me the sound of hope.
Told me the sound of a burden shared.
Told me the sound of how to cope.
The sound that means 'I cared'.
