Departing Love
My hearing is gone
I can no longer listen
Your voice is not heard
The music no longer plays

Softening of footsteps in the distance
The gentle rustle of leaves in a tree
Active children at the playground
The static noise of nothingness

I hear nothing
I'm deaf now
My ears have died
It is my eyes that now listen
