Silence in Love
Years Passed, but, the love for you still didn't decrease
In my heart, you were the one whom I loved ;
You abode me with tenderness,
I felt the pleasant love in your words.
Tremendous love flew from you, over me,
You came nearer, my eyes flooded with happy tears ;
Tears spoke, no words to utter,
Fell onto your chest, listened the beat of your heart.
The beat of your heart spoke to me,
Your tongue was silent without words ;
My ears listened to it without fail
To feel the love of my better-half.
The silence spoke much between us,
The silence meant more between us,
My knees fell down before you
To hold the love of my life.
No red roses for me, no gifts for me,
No surprises from you, never understood my expectations;
But the silence remained between us,
It revealed the unending love for me
You hate silence, but, I loved it always,
Never listened to your words, never obeyed you;
But, your love never ceased for me,
The love for me never halt from you.
You were the reason that I'm living today,
I was a not a perfect love for you,
Still, my heart always chased you with love
To seek the true love for me.
I flew in my little world with wings
Of love and trust which bind us;
The true love in you became my breath
And I breathed in you as my soul.
