A loud voice within a silent heart

I sought in the place where once I began a journey
A place within my vague memories 

I watched, as the colors of my eyes faded away
I listened, as the voice within my heart yelled over in vain

Without a sight,
For years, I lived a life of nights

Without a voice
I spoke the words of my heart

Within the past, present, and unanticipated future
I waited the moment of my own departure 

For it was in silence, that I wept
In solitude, that I fought
& in grief, I died

Dedicated to my Grandfather. Baba Shareff.
