the words pledge to give up the throne
and let silence rule alone
the kingdom once mutually shared
and stepping down, the words stop! ask-
will you, o silence, still stand by me?
your ears still hear what i no more say…
without a glance , will your eyes see me…
will your heads turn, still seeking me??
and silently thou raise up your eyes
that words may fail but silence never
so the “unspoken” said would last forever
and the eyes not glancing keep watching forever…
so dearest of dears, thou may exit
but your very being stays right here
and though we now walk different paths,
thy kingdom lives to ETERNITY!!
