An Ode To Silence

Your silence is a harp to me
When I travel into you, I feel so in love
Lifted on clouds, the hum of peace
Rotating the sun and moon 
Like an angel

You are the music in my heart
You are my temples
Thrust your silence, say nothing
When you said nothing, your eyes 
A strong ripple, bathed in me, bliss

I am at the level of your madness
So beautiful and free, bursting a kid’s laughter

I sleep in your eyes
I dwell in your heart
I am your miracle
Our love is a miracle

I come naked in your sigh, a secret garden 
A pillow for your head
My breasts supple for your mouth
I have taken off, everything
Carry my bruised heart  
And before we’d die our love 
Would kiss enough

Your kisses, cherished by time 
Diamonds and flowers, a rain
In the shadows of my grief
Hold me tight, be forever mine

Your kisses, the plight of my heart
They teach me all the languages
I can’t speak
The questions
I can’t answer
Those things, I do not know
They teach me everything
How to write 
How to weave 
How to wind words 
And prayers.

I trace your face, your lips, your nose 
Your hair, your body, all of you
And when you smile and cry 
Day and night, you are
In my memory

I awake with you in my thoughts
I sleep with you in my thoughts
Your eyes look at me 
Like a warrior’s eyes, fierce from a battle
Your fists bold, with blood, the baptism of loyalty 
To be back in my arms,  be mine forever

Those times I cried
Your face, my light
Your love completes me
It is all I have

They saw me bathing in your eyes
We can’t conceal our love
We can’t conceal the love in your eyes
They would show to the world

Your silence fills me, deep as the ocean
Your smell on me, like birth
Your touch, I adore
Hold me tight, in age and sweetly
And until death, keep me
Let Heaven bind our promises

My heart is yours as my diaries
The words I speak and those buried on God’s hands
Are gifts, I have carved in my heart
My sorrows, only heaven can heal  
Come kneel with me

Take me, take me now, drink the tears 
I hide beneath rainbows 
Take me, take all of me, touch me
Never let me go

As I am cleansed, in heaven’s mercy 
Untainted now, and separated 
I am yours forever
Veiled in a mystery of grace
As I lay down my life

Because I want you
Because I love your silence 
Eternity drizzling on us
While we kiss
Snow falling on us
When our bodies become one 
In  a  lightning’s hilt
We create

And that is why, I love you
And that is why, I love you 
And that is why, I love you so much.
