Sounds of Silence

By Carolina Hanlon

I awoke this morning

All sound was gone

Gone  with the wind

Now where do I begin?


There's so much to do

Do I still have time?

There are still dreams

I want to pursue

Will I have time

To make them mine?


I  now have mountains to climb

Do I still have time?

Silence came to me

So suddenly

And then I thought

Life really is too short.


Life to me

Isn't enough to satisfy me

I have mountains to climb

and dreams to pursue.

But will I still have the time?

To make them mine?
