Silence

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.

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.....................................Saddest of all, most melancholic of all situations But still very touching the heart.

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..................................and so I imagine now HOW my elder bro must have experienced and he indeed said nothing bad about me, he is always such a good bro, like you are for your younger brother. Fascinating poem, dear great Poetess. I am in awe, truly.
To sing a melody For my father Who earnestly wishes To hear the golden voice Of his very own..................................Again full of melancholy. Very touching. Most beautifully worded, dear great Poetess and so finest worded. It's all in the introvert personality. Tenderest words uttered here.
