Silent Songbird

Cold and numb,

And drenched in sorrow,

As I silently wait for morrow,

What pain will dawn bring?

As silently, the birds sing.

My routine begins again,

Roll over; play dead,

Grin and bear it;

Soon comes the end.

The sun sets, resurrecting

Another sleepless night.

Your words still sting,

As silently the birds sing.
