We said hello, then goodnight, and let the silence speak.
We watched worlds shift, form, and reform in our stillness.
But we were together in the quiet, and that was all that mattered.
Yes. That was all I said, and you knew exactly what I meant.
And I wondered if you knew that I hurt with you?
That it was my loss too? But we stayed quiet till morning came.
Alone at night, writing by a flame, the torch you gave me threw too much light
The light offensive this dark day where memories needed to be pushed away
The night stretched longer and insomniacal than usual, and together we kept apart.
We were no strangers to pain, to tears.
But somehow we never cried this time.
We lay on separate beds, sharing similar fears, and that was enough for now.
The not-knowing is terrible, the knowing can pain too.
I try not to think or feel, as I know you will also do.
Misery loves company, and each other we shall keep.
So we will say hello, then goodnight, and let the silence speak.
We will watch worlds shift, form, and reform in our stillness.
We will be together in the quiet, and that is all that matters.
