Without words

Without words

Loving you
without words
in the silence
in the near silence
in the half-light
as day breaks
as you sleep on
my breath
with your breath
perhaps our hearts

Loving you
without thought
or just thinking
of you and of us
and being side
by side
in the half-light
in the near silence
wanting nothing
but to be there
for the moment
when you wake
when your eyes
and your lips curl
into a smile

Loving you
without words
hand in hand
arm in arm
on the streets
of London
or Budapest
or wherever
we happen
to be

John Lyons
