The Greatest

The greatest thing I've ever said
Is nothing at all, Love.
So why does anyone care
When I sit here silent as Death?

The greatest expression I've made
Is the blank face I've donned for months.
So why does anyone care
That I don't smile like I used to?

The greatest thing I've ever done
Is sit around indifferent as the next.
So, why does anyone care
When I don't jump at seeing You?

The greatest thing I've ever thought
Is that the world would be no different without.
So, why would anyone care
When I left this world for good?

I guess I've heard it's true.
Silence isn't a virtue
Which I should possess.
Is there something greater?

I guess I've heard it's true.
Blank stares from me
Make everyone else cry.
Could there be greater?

I guess I've heard it's true.
Indifference isn't favored
When in company with friends.
There must be something greater.

I guess I've heard it's true.
Thoughtless thoughts
Aren't really thoughts at all.
There is…

…greater…

The greatest thing I've ever said
Is "I love you, my Love!"
So I see why
Everyone hates my silence.

The greatest expression I've made
Is a smile that cheers even Death.
So I see why
Blank stares aren't welcomed.

The greatest thing I've ever done
Is take stones over popularity.
So I see why
I am sick for my indifference.

The greatest thing I've ever thought
Is that there's good in everyone.
So I see why
I could be useful for something else, yet.

But, if it's the greatest thing I could say,
Why is it so damn painful
To find that person
You want to say it to?

But, if it's the greatest expression I could make,
Why is it so damn prevalent
For me to cry my eyes out
And never stop?

But, if it's the greatest thing I could do,
Why is it so damn easy
To spare myself
The pain and the hurt?

But, if it's the greatest thing I could think,
Why is my mind blank,
More blank than a white page,
When I look in your eyes?
