And Softly Silence Speaks..... - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

When love flows between two yearning hearts,
Even Gods and angels listen,
As softly silence speaks,
And softly silence speaks.....

When the loving couple walk hand in hand,
Along the banks of a flowing river,
Even the lapping sound slowly ceases,
As softly silence speaks.....

When the loving duo sit in the dark woods,
The nocturnal birds and animals listen,
Their whispers travel miles away,
As softly silence speaks, they sit and pray…

When the lovers take a moonlight stroll,
And discuss their secrets in rapt attention,
Even the crickets stop their evening song,
As softly silence speaks, they stroll along!

Topic(s) of this poem: love

    When the loving couple walk hand in hand
    Along the banks of a flowing river
    Even the lapping sound slowly ceases
    And softly silence speaks- - - The soft tender feelings of love require no words as they vibrate in nature and can be heard silently.The voice of silence so profoundly expressed.
