It’s still supposed to be half-funny. Or at least light hearted. That’s why I used the word “darned” in there instead of the more serious “damned”. Enjoy!
Silence and Sounds
By Ada Ireland
If silence truly were golden,
We’d both be rich.
You – because you are its source,
You’re always quiet.
Me – because I’m its receiving end,
I’m always waiting for your words.
I miss your wisdom.
I crave the sounds of your beautiful mind.
Riches be darned,
I’d rather hear your speak.
I LOVE your voice.
P.S. I’m thinking I should start a YouTube channel and read my poems there. What? Maya Angelou did it. Plus, these poems are supposed to be read with a really cute Eastern European accent. Good luck doing that on your own!
P.P.S. Right after I posted the P.S. I found the picture below. The YouTube channel idea is now on hold.
