An Unspoken Love
by Rohit Leandro Leandro
It struck like a flash of lightening and caught me unaware;
I felt a surge of life within, with it an urge to care.
I never thought that once again I would dare to fall in love.
And yet I hadn?t fallen but was flying high above.
The world has set up fences and them I must accept!
Alas! Against all my senses I must make myself adept.
I wish that I could hold her for a moment of divinity;
And in my arms I?d keep her till the end of eternity.
Even though I see in her eyes a daze that?s there in mine,
To the world I show a sea of lies; I force myself to shine.
But even through a silent gaze I hear her dampened breath.
I know that it?s a dreamy haze, perhaps the sweetest way to death.
A smile, I put upon my face, and wish her loads of love,
And though my heart still beats with pace, I?ll love her from above.
I promise her that in her quest, whenever there is a bend,
She can count on me and I?ll be there, I?ll always be a friend.
I pray that she?ll remember me through all her days of joys and strife
That unspoken love I gift to her... a memory for life!
