When do you see words holding tight
Each other in embrace to love?
They silently come next to one
To be the reason for a thought!

Thus ‘man’ may wait for ‘smiled’ to come
When ‘lovely’ and ‘woman’ come near
Then stories can go gushing on
With words, more words, going with the flow!

Right words in line create the scene
That thought can see and picture well
It’s time to share what no one knows:
Its words that give a life to love!

Is there no love in silence then?
Does silence never lives to love?
Words are silent and when they meet
Some more of silence they create
A silence that is vocal too
A silence that two lovers can
Hear well and know there’s love in life!
