I like your silence And the volume at which it speaks Its honesty emits a truth which words sometimes forget The sound of silence can be deafening for some Pregnant pauses become overdue until something must be said
You could be cruel You could be kind You could also be mistaken
You pick your pauses so carefully that what follows must be heard Flooding our ears with unthoughtful words is emotional pollution Have a moment of silence Breathe and stop Wait and see Choose your battles carefully
Your tongue rests with angels in spite of all the hell it could awaken I may not always understand your silence, but I know where it comes from Birthed in a place of patience Raised with peace of mind Walked a mile with empathy The space between your words reveals what words can’t
For every Speaker, there is a Listener For every word, one must be heard
I see your silence I can still hear what you mean I feel your silence When I can understand your heart
Nothing feels the same. I feel like I think too much. When it all becomes too much, I walk past familiar places into the unknown. I found somewhere I could hear your voice. I stay till the Sun goes down.
All these dreams started with you. You saw the good in the little things. Waking up in a world without you feels false. You truly had so much love to show. Everything felt right in your light.
The night sky puts my doubts to rest. The stars dance when I say your name. Remind me I’m not alone. We had all the time in the world. But this world is not enough.
The world may change, but it’s alright. I will never be the same, but it’s alright. It’s not what I want, but it’s what you need. I’ll always know how to find you. And in finding you I find myself.
