Songs Never Sung



Silence: Words not spoken,
Songs never sung
Unfettered, fly to the light


Dedicated to my older brother!

  1. Beautiful, Becca! I’m unclear on the context, though – is this an homage to a strong and silent kind of guy, or a farewell to him (fly to the light)? Hopefully the former, and not the latter! *hugs*

    Love this! It could describe my best friend. He’s the strong silent type.
