His Silence


He's silent in a hundred different ways. Yet in his silence, count the many times he's made you FEEL. Never forget:

-When he said your name, both in desperation and need.

-When his arms held you.

-When he made you laugh.

-When you heard his smile over the phone.

-When he first meant the words, "I love you."

-When he made you cry from both pleasure and pain.

-When you expected him to leave, but he didn't.

...These are the times you count. And they are all strings attached to your vulnerable heart.
