His heart is silent.
He speaks no more
  of things and scenes that went before,
  before he knew who hides.
In the closet he still abides.

He never sings or speaks sweet words.
He just stands there in the dark
  watching and waiting like a hungry shark.

Someday he'll look in the mirror
  and see the one he always knew.
He'll love and accept him.
He'll start anew.

When that day comes I'll still be here
   smiling and waiting to wipe each tear.
I'll say, "I love you no matter what."
"Just be happy. Don't give up."

Hi Carole...I've noticed, from the poems of yours which I've read so far, that you think very positively, ready to help and to give others a second chance. This one is no exception! ~ Regards // paul
