Salve of silence

How can I provide solace

to that mother

who has lost

her two sons in heydays?

What can I say

in front of her acrid tears?

What happened,

when and how,

I won't ask,

and puncture your eyes.

As for your grief

I've no soothing words.

Oh mother,

I won't say anything

but would try

to give a salve of silence

that may not wipe your tears

but at least won't puncture

your eyes.

and here I take a

silent bye.
