Silent Words

Her eyes that speak of love’s desire
Echo the music of passion’s lyre
No words can say the things I seek
Only within her eyes that speak
When time stands still at love’s command
And all she is I understand
A gentle kiss to state my will
As we unite when time stands still
Inside her eyes is all I need
The flame of lust on which I feed
Amid the song of lover’s sighs
And I am lost inside her eyes
These silent words of sweet romance
Are found within a lover’s glance
