In a world where hearts ignore compassionate cries. Acts of kindness become rare, so empathy dies. As human nature loses the skill to listen, his mission is to help every smile to glisten. He needs no theme song to introduce his name, nor has a desire to reach Hollywood fame. No x-ray vision nor bionic power, he can't read minds nor move the Eiffel tower. His tongue is an olive branch forming peaceful words, most beautiful soul whose heart can conquer swords. When sorrow calls and heartache leaves the mind in knots, his sincere voice will calm those tormented thoughts. The tenderness of his fingertips will soothe dark scars, as the heart heals, it will illuminate like stars. He sees no difference between a dove or pigeon, his humble heart spreads love like a religion. He is not the sandman, but he can help bring dreams, he has no halo, but his love flows like streams. His life is like a cherry blossom bud full of grace, a butterfly who doesn't belong in this place. In his quest he sacrifices his own pain, aware his emotions are like sandcastles in rain. He knows death awaits, but his empathy bleeds, continuing to inspire, ignoring his own needs. The Silent One 18 November 2017

Hi, Silent One! I only have a couple of minutes, but I really wanted to thank you for your encouragement on my first efforts on Poetry Soup. I am, in fact, a very new poet. I started writing two months ago, at the tender age of 67. So, Thank you, thank you, thank you! G-d bless you! Happy 2018. By New Year's Day, I'll have a little time to read some of your poems and put in my two cents. From what I saw of "Aurora," your poems move readers! Best, Gershon Wolf H

Hi silent one. I know that the only one that has and still fits this bill totally is "Jesus Christ. As usual you describe with a high level and unique talent. Take care.

Love this write Silent. We all need to be more selfless. A person has recently come into my life who is much more selfless than I and she has truly inspired me. :)

Back with Congratulations on your POTD, so well deserved. Don't know where my previous wish disappeared to? In a fast moving world where people are too caught up in their lives, giving others time of day is not the norm. Finding a person who can do that is rare indeed. A true Hero in my eyes. You find the time to do that my friend. You are always there for your loved ones and friends...Maria

Truly exceptional poetry my friend. This world neither sees or cares to see the many hidden heroes that quietly go about their business aiding others and trying to spread , love, good cheer and better life/living conditions to others. Congrats on POTD AND THIS IS TRULY A GREAT FAV FOR ME. As my father truly was such a man....
