The Sound of Silence

I can hear clapping and slapping.
I can hear giggling and drizzling.
I can hear chattering and clattering.
I can hear the mumbling and crumbling.
I can hear whistling and nibbling.

What can’t I hear?
I can’t hear the sound of silence,
A musical note of rest.
The ringing in my ear
The tinnitus can’t disappear.
At all time, it’s here.
How I miss the sound of silence,
that musical note of rest!
