The silence I hear from you tells me
A story you hesitate to put into words;
Neither you nor I am a fool so great
As not to know the truth!
But we do fool ourselves on the outside,
Trying to justify what is happening;
As life has enfeebled us, we dare not now
Tell one another that there is love.
But never mind; for both you know and I know
That the trembling silence has
Spoken of two souls intertwined.
