The Bittersweet Silence
(GP, 13/11/2011)

In the bittersweet silence
Wind, don't hide in the trees
Birds, don't give up your song
Bees, your humming don't ease
You're the prize that's been won
And the price that's been paid
By the ones gone before
For the ones that remained

In the bittersweet silence
Children, don't stop your play
Lovers, don't break your kiss
Laughter, don't go away
You're the signposts of life
And the pleasures so dear
To the ones left behind
Yet in mind always near

Never again. Never again. Never, never, never again!

So don't stare at the ground
As the seconds pass by
And don't ask Who or How
Ask instead only "Why?"
In the bittersweet silence
There's a lesson untold
By the ones who stayed young
So we'd learn to grow old

Never again. Never again. Never, never, never again!
