Silently - Poem by Lora Colon

Silently I told the Lord
Of the heavy heart I've borne,
Then you appeared, offering your love,
My prayer of thanks I've outworn

Silently I told a dove
Why I'm singing all day long,
You, my love, taught me all the words
To my hallelujah song

Silently I told the sun,
To him I revealed your name,
A burning passion I dared share
With the keeper of the flame

Silently I had to shout
To the mountains and the streams,
I told them of my love for you,
How you came to share my dreams

Silently I sang my song,
All my love for you expressed,
Though I know no one heard a word,
I feel like I have confessed

Silently you brought your love
Like a bouquet to my heart,
I heard the choir's divine Amen,
Watching solitude depart

Silently we share our love,
Our vows in silence spoken,
How long the wait, yearning until
Our silence can be broken

    A beautiful poem about love. I like the way you change from 'Silently I' to 'Silently we' in the last stanza.

    I don't understand the last two lines, they sound sad and I was expecting something very happy?

    Silently we share our love,
    Our vows in silence spoken,
    How long the wait, yearning until
    Our silence can be broken
    An excellent poem of communication in silence.More vistas and horizons open when we communicate silently.Truth also dawns in silence.Very well done.keep it up 10/10
