Winnie Chang

Unsaid

Wish for the words
That you can't speak,
Hush for the song
That you can't sing,
Confide in stars
You canít believe,
Linger for grief
You just canít leave,
Live to hope for
Another day.

Fight for the name
That you can't say,
Cradle the pulse of
Notes you can't hear,
Chase the echoes of
Dreams you canít see,
Taste the hot rain
Your hands can't grasp,
Swallow the chance
You can't regret,
Live for the ones
You can't bring back.

Breathe in the courage
You canít hold in,
Hear your heartbeat racing
Even after youíre breathless Ė

With words you never had to say.
