SilenceMature

To help you when you fell,

I just sat there

In silence.

I listened to your tears hit the floor.

I pulled you to my chest.

I let you listen to my heartbeat.

I thought that maybe,

If you heard someone's whole heart beating,

It will mend your shattered one.

I thought that maybe,

If I showed you I was strong,

You would live to see tomorrow.

I thought this in silence;

Listening to your tears hit the floor.

The End
