Stones Speak

Faded flowers decorate the yard

Stones stand still

They don't judge

They don't argue

They sit

In silence

Waiting

On You 

So You 

Talk To Them 

Them 

Agreeing 

With You

You

Screaming at Them 

Your Troubles 

Your Pain

Anything

You Say 

They Listen 

Quietly

Supporting You

As You Lay 

Against Them 

After Blaming Them 

For Taking

Them

From You

Stones Tell You 

"It's Okay"

Suddenly It Is

They Listen 

In Their Silence

You Know That 

It Is Okay

Stones Don't Talk 

They Listen 

They Speak 

In Their Silence 

After the Screaming

Or the Chatter

After Not Seeing Them 

For Nine Years

They Speak 

They Tell You 

"It's Okay" 

"All Is Well"

"We Listen"

"We Understand" 

"We Are Here"

You Thank Them 

For Listening 

And Turn Away

Heart a Little Lighter

Sun a Little Brighter

Smiling a Little More
