Listening in Silence


Being a listener,

Listening to the soft Whisper growing stronger bit-by-bit,

Leaving behind the daily shrieks of time,

The gentle, reassuring Whisper that I listen to,

Listening full of devotion, and attention,

Listening to the unifying Silence

That whispers a forgotten melody—

What else is there but to follow it

To where I belong

And awaken to the soft embrace

Of changeless,

Silent Love.

Joseph Ignaz Mildorfer
