It Seems So Very Sad

When I was younger, 
I used to watch the older 
Couples in awe.
Silence was all that was
spoken between them.
I thought it to be so sad.
My heart went out to them,
because it seemed as though
they had nothing left to say.
And I used to wonder why;
Even after so many years,
How could there ever be
nothing that you could possibly 
speak to one another.
Perhaps words of love,
Which are often not spoken enough.
Now I look at us,
It seems so very sad.
Silence is all that is
spoken between us;
Words of love is something...
We seldom have.
