She was the voice

She was the voice

She was the voice
           of the night
the voice of the day
           she was the voice
of the sea
           she was the voice
of the wind
           she was the voice
of the moon and stars
           she was the voice

When the world
           was silent
and no light shone
           she was the voice
in my ear
           she was the words
on my tongue
           and all the words
I did not speak
           I saved for her
in my heart
           sun or shine
she was the voice
           that filled my thoughts
in a universe
           awash with noise
she was the only voice
           I heard
