Listen Very Hard

Silence - rare like diamonds - gold - happiness.
You can't buy silence online
"Two tins of nothing at all please! - What was that?"
I thought I heard myself think.
The 21st century stopped for a second,
all those TV's and radios
the cars and planes,
just for a second - stopped.

And there I was - me!
"Hello..." - too late!
The 21st century kicked in again!
Kicked in; and I was gone!
Like a chance meeting,
never to be repeated.
I was gone,
lost under the din that is our lives today.

I'm sure I'm still there - me, in amongst it all -
and I'm sure I will get another chance to hear myself.
I guess I'll just have to be patient - or listen very hard!
