In The Silence ©David G Smith  
615-483-1781  

She was always there for me 
She was always there 
With roots and canopy 
As unruffled as the morning  air  
I could count on her-ad-vice 
SHE was like a mother to me 
Now all I see in her vacant eyes 
(is) Vulnerability  

In the silence  
I’m learning how        
Two unfettered souls__ are talking now  

I didn’t know this language 
I didn’t know this life 
All I felt was the anguish 
(of) having to see her in a different light 
She used to be this one thing 
She was a rock for me 
But now there is this something--- new 
Possibility_______  

In the silence  
I’m learning how        
Two unfettered souls__ are talking now  

There are no rules 
There are no roles 
There is only real 
To FILL up all the holes______  

In the silence  
I’m learning how  
Two unfettered souls  
Have never been so close  
As we are right now
