Conversations in Silence

You spoke heart-words to me last night,
not with lips but with your eyes.
Tears dropped red and freely flowed;
even in silence you would not hide
from me the suffering of your soul.
I will not presume, my friend,
to force to words unspoken thought.
I am content to wait for you
and what you choose to give, not
for my sake but for your own.
You’ve placed your heart within my hand.
I’ll not betray your trust, my friend.
