The sound of silence

“And in the naked light I saw,
ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
people hearing without listening,
people writing songs that voices never share.
And no one dared,
disturb the sound of silence.”
Disturbed – The sound of silence

A guest is coming for a visit.
I made coffee and put something small to eat on the table.
My guest was on time as always.
I welcomed him and asked to sit down.
We talked for hours.
About life and me.
I heard what was important for me.
I heard what I need.
I also heard of myself things that felt unpleasant.
What kind of I am.
What others think of me.

Though it wasn’t easy to meet my guest I learned a lot of myself during these hours. I know now what I have to do so that I can feel good.

The doorbell rang. I opened the door. I ask my friend in. We sit down, drink coffee and talk. The silence goes out from the way.

When was the last time that you invited silence for a visit?
