Silence

Poem By Rose Marie Juan Austin

How I wish I could move you
On the floor of my mouth
To articulate the thoughts
That arise in me.

To utter the words
That a mother
Yearns to hear
From her beloved daughter.

To sing a melody
For my father
Who earnestly wishes
To hear the golden voice
Of his very own.

I always love to listen
To the endless queries
Of my little brother
I know
I answered them so well
But he seemed
Not to understand.

No one will ever know
The deepest longings of my heart
And the hurts
I usually encountered
The joys and happiness
I experienced in life.

The memories I gathered
I want to convey
And share them with you
But they always
Stay with me
Only for me.

Beautiful and sad- “the memories I gathered... I want to share ... but they always stay with me“
A poem of semi tragic mixed emotions but expressed with true open feelings of the heart. A full score for your poem of tragedy and at the same time empathy. Take care Good Rose Marie and thank you for writing and sharing your fine poem.
An excellent poem, with a compelling opening stanza, feelings put the pen in style. Kb
Poet Rose Marie, you articulated your feelings, sentiments and memories in a style of river Nile flow. What a flow of words with a flurry of feelings. Simply superb!
No one will ever know The deepest longings of my heart And the hurts I usually encountered The joys and happiness I experienced in life. in silence we all suffer in this life. sufferings teach us a lot and make us spiritual. a very fine poem. tony
