The weeping of the silence

The weeping of the silence

Translated by :
Hassan Hegazy (Egypt )

It was the farewell
For a heart, a door, and an eye
That was filled with tears
For the enshrouded child,
Weeping the houses
In a crooked cradle

The wall remains:
Remnants for a memory
Including remains
Dangled onto the evening brow,
the neck of the nights,
and the neck of the day
Dangling between the ribs of the wall
A memory of a dead
And a symbol of shame
Hit the pure and the innocents
In the daylight,

He went without an obituary
or any revenge
Except for the tears of the widows
and the mourning of the young
leaving us to drown in our false tears
and in the loss of our unawareness
and in the dizziness,
our silence remains to the death
the dust is complaining and
the Graves are complaining
the stillness of the houses
Looking forward to the birth of the day
To disperse our gloomy dark nights
