Gone III

It isn’t that I don’t still sing for you

You simply no longer hear my voice

It’s lost in the harsh cacophony clamouring in your ears

Ground to nothing under the heel of doubt

Life’s boot to my throat closes off my song

There are only whispered notes of what was

And they too will soon fade

A plaintive diminuendo

You’ll strain to hear with your heart
