Silent Words


They are unspoken in every wanting glance

Adoration and longing

Conveyed in soft hands clasped in romantic dance

Sensed in truly belonging


A hand that brushes away each saddened tear

A moment of compassion

Shared strength that bolsters against your greatest fear

A safe and loving bastion


Each soft, gentle kiss upon your blushing cheek

Emotions in testament

Every kindness given without need to seek

Feelings cast in firmament


The laughter laughed in the company of friends

Uproarious connection

Loving hand cupping face and the warmth it sends

Untold psalms of affection


Yet in the moments when love is left unsaid

Heartfelt words left unspoken

It is these silent words which ring in our head

Actions echoed unbroken
