Silence In this silence I love you. And with this silence I give to you. In spite of this silence I cherish you. But still the silence; I don't understand you. Because of this silence I come to you; Embraced in silence I hold you. I've never known such silence, yet it speaks to me. For with this silence I long to be. Talk to me in silence. Speak to me without words of understanding. Let me not mistake this silence for neglect, For your silence is love in your own way, And in your own guarded heart.
