A Marriage (1) - Poem by Gillian Thurlby

Actions, not words, declare his love
Phrases of endearment do not pass his lips
Kisses tell what he would speak of
His thoughts transmitted through his finger tips

This is my moment of maturity
Reassurance must be put aside
Never knowing if he’s here with me
In silence, can my heart stay open wide

Choosing to seek within such difference
A way to live ouside the known
Ego embracing acquiescence
Proving that love can triumph on its own
