whispers



whispers


prima che sia troppo tardi

listen to the whispers
before the shouts come
hear the silence
before the noise

hear your heartbeat
the song of your soul
before you forget to hear
before the shouts leave you deaf

listen
ecoutez
ascoltate

udari
entendez
hear

the whispers may say something
you need to take in
this sound of secrets
for everyone, to everyone
pour tout le monde, al mondo
listen to the whispers
écoutez les chuchotements
ascoltate i sussurri

before it is too late

  1. I'm sorry,but there are 3 lines here just before the last line, that will not print correctly. I can't figure it out. Eventually, I will delete this post. These are the lines:
    listen to the whispers
    écoutez les chuchotements
