Thank you for your silence

(13/01/2019)

Thank you for your silence

when I needed to be talked to

I learned to listen to myself

I learned my voice is powerful

Thank you for your absence

When I needed someone to hug

I learned to comfort myself on my own

I learned self-sufficency

Thank you for your indifference

When I needed someone to cry to

I learned to shed my tears in silence

I learned my tears dry on their own

Thank you for your frailty

When I needed someone to support

I learned I have me only to rely on

I learned what independence is

Thank you for your silence

When I wanted to share my life with you

And when you finally make up your mind, maybe one day

Please, forgive me, I might not have time for that
