When Life Is Quiet

When Life is Quiet by KD

When life is quiet
And the phone doesn’t ring
It may feel as if the birds do not sing
Remember you’re not alone

When life is quiet
By your own design
You’ve purposely left some things behind
Remember you’re not alone

When life is quiet
And friends let you down
You look, but they are not to be found
Remember you’re not alone

For in the quiet of life
We learn to hear again
We learn to see again
We remember the sound of our own voice
We remember who we are
We become re-focused
We cry tears long held in
We release burdens long weighing us down
We heal

The Quiet

The quiet
so soft
so loud
invading my space
i hear the buzz of lights
chirping of crickets
cars driving down the road
but in my house
it’s dark
and quiet
time for sleep
but i’m not yet tired
the glow
of my computer
staring back at me
while i type
words
without rhyme
or reason
or time
just random thoughts
on a page
in these moments of quiet
I find myself
contemplating the universe
asking God questions
letting go
of the act i’ve been playing all day
this is the time
when
I can be myself
i can breathe
i can release
unload … and
unwind
ahhh
goodnight
sweet dreams
