Silent Friend

when demons scream fabricating falsehoods i'll summon the angels to help ease your mind when you feel damaged too broken to whisper in dull blank darkness i'll illuminate like stars when dreams are nightmares sleeplessness stresses sanity rest tired head on my chest i'll be your comforting pillow when you forget the lyrics i'll hum sentimental tunes when struggling to express i'll create heartfelt poetry when tears rush in like the tide puddles become dismally deep i'll lift you upon the highest cliff watch sunrise from your heart when leaves fall to the ground birds abandon naked branches i'll wrap you in my winter coat till green leaves shelter nests when society points in prejudice i'll strive for justice in injustice open every door that has closed clear paths to offer you clarity when there is too much silence i'll request nightingales to sing when there is too much noise i'll always be your silent friend Sunday Musings Silent One 18 October 2020 Dedicated to all those who are always there for others. True act of friendship and compassion is how friendly and compassionate you are to those, who are not. Even those who may take it for granted.

It is sad that this does not come naturally to us all. I found your poem very touching and sincere. I liked the verse, When society points in prejudice etc. Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem... Shirley

Hi Silent One - you are a true friend and one that I can always come to for advise. your empathy and gentle soul is evident in this fascinating, glorious poem you have penned, and in fact in all your poetry. One doesn't need many friends, a sincere friend that one can count on is magical, and will silently and loyally always remain one. Hope you won't be gone for too long my friend. Hugs and Gods constant blessings as well as mine. Jennifer.

I have found one, in my adult life, who does as your beautiful Poem indicates. Our Omnipressant Lord and Saviour. He holds me when I weep, encourages me when I feel unsure or affraid. This song always reminded me of His love. So many Love songs do ?

This is the best, and especially this stanza: "when tears rush in like the tide puddles become dismally deep i'll lift you upon the highest cliff watch sunrise from your heart" Well done. Clapping now.
