On Befriending Silence

This is the first of my entries for Poem a Day April 2016.

Eyes closed to earthly duty
I befriend the Silence
Surrounded by it, nowhere to run;
Except within

Truth and I might have crossed paths
I doubt I would have known
Now I know her touch
You might even say I am in love with Truth

I bow to the silence
Where it would have shrouded me before
I welcome the chance to rewrite history
And henceforward, call silence my friend.
