Khairul Ahsan


And Softly Silence Speaks.....


When love flows between two yearning hearts,
Gods and angels listen,
As softly silence speaks,
And softly silence speaks.....

When the loving couple walk hand in hand,
Along the banks of a flowing river,
Even the lapping sound slowly ceases,
And softly silence speaks.....

When the loving duo sit in the dark woods,
The nocturnal birds and animals listen,
Their whispers travel miles away,
As softly silence speaks.....

When the lovers take a moonlight stroll,
And divulge their secrets to attentive ears,
Even the crickets stop their evening songs,
And softly silence speaks.....

    Very nice Khairul - I loved it and express it through few lines of one of my poems....

    And that silent voice is so very sharp
    that can be listened by even a deaf
    Cause that silent voice speaks a lot
    about the love which is so deep (Report) Reply

    my daddy once sayed that there was a story of silence and he was quiet afterword.
    And if you lission quietly in your backyard you can hear the birds chirping and the wind whispering softly. (Report) Reply
