“Just be still and listen” Shloka Shankar
Sure, you can hear, the death knell
of your dreams, the grand plans for your life
that you charted as a child.
Hush, but listen also
for the lilting tune of the night
as it calls to you from memories
filling your world with delight.
Listen for the sound of laughter
as it tip-toes in quietly, barely heard
above love, which is silent and still.
There is hope yet, still your mind and listen
Listen to your heart, as it carries you along.
Just be still and listen. Be still,
And listen as your world bursts into song.
