Silence

Silence.

Father, Mother,
Sister, Brother,

Silence.

Husband, Wife,
Partner, Child,

Silence.

Aunty, Uncle,
Nephew, Niece,

Silence.

Gran, Grandad,
Cousin, Friend,

Silence.

Grandchild, Godchild,
Neighbour, Stranger,

Silence.

Close to home or a distant land,

Silence.

War is something I don't understand,

Silence.

It's no solution any way,

Silence.

The innocent are the ones that pay,

Silence.

Eleventh hour,

Eleventh day,

Eleventh month,

Silence.
