SILENT WITNESS

I am a silent witness
To portions of my life
The days when I have been,
Daughter, mother, wife.

I am a silent witness
To the thoughts within my head,
Decisions made, plans gone wrong,
The difficult path I tread.

I am a silent witness
To the pain I feel within,
Mistakes made and time lost ~
A race I cannot win.

I am a silent witness
To the things I cannot change
No matter what the heartache ~
Things I cannot rearrange.

I am a silent witness
To the love I feel within
The love of friends and family
And those not kith or kin.

I am a silent witness
To all of my heartís dreams,
The little, tiny loving things
The grand and glorious schemes.

I am a silent witness
To the whole of my lifeís being,
The secrets living in my heart,
That no other will be seeing.
