Empty Halls

When shall death come passing by,
And the world shall at last hear my cry?

When will I wander in his shade,
And feel my breath cease and beauty fade?

So many have cried, so many unheard calls,
Their message echoing through empty halls.

Such cruel a trick the hand of Time doth play,
That in death alone, attention they pay.

A silence louder than a deafening roar,
To be alone encased by walls and a closed door.

    Hi Emily. I'm new to PoetrySoup and was wandering around the site when I came across this lovely, haunting poem. We do tend to take one another for granted until death comes. Then it is too late to show our appreciation. I invite you to visit my page and to share your thoughts of my poetry. I hope we can become better acquainted in the future....Sam
