Telling Signs

We may only have minutes
to talk about our day,
but your stories go on
and on, much like
a bottomless well.

We may only have hours
solely for each other,
but the look of longing
in your eyes makes up
for not being with me.

We may only have little
to spend, to shell out,
but the warmth
in each other’s arms
brings us so much joy.

We can only say so much
to speak our hearts out,
but let our touch, our gaze,
our kiss, our embrace say
what words cannot.

  12. Its an amazing creation and I did love reading it especially this phrase below;

    "We can only say so much
    to speak our hearts out,
    but let our touch, our gaze,
    our kiss, our embrace say
    what words cannot."
