Because you don’t have to use words to express how you feel…
I’m waiting for you to call out my name.
Let me listen as you speak to me.
Let me finally hear the words I yearn for.
Clear my heart of any doubt
Erase all my fears
With your whispered words of affection
But your voice does not come
Instead, you smile and reach out
Enveloping me in your warmth
Your touch says it all
Your embrace brings assurance
There is only the sound of our hearts
On this most perfect of moments
As I finally come to realize how
Some things are better left unspoken.
