after all

My English Poems
after all

the dust will settle
after all
but the words spoken
will ring long afterwards
through the night

what was said is done
and what was meant
soon forgotten
for every cry unheard
leaves no memory

things will change
no escape
time won' t stop anyway
we will fade into the shadows
where forgiveness waits
