Silent Times

Stay awhile . . .
Your eyes are sad,
I’ve talked too much
And never heard
          The silence of your words.

The sadness of your laughter
Escaped me for a time
          . . . But, now . . .
I see the aching of your heart
Reflected in
          The absence of your words.

Come, sit beside me,
And let us make amends.
I cannot let you go
Before we’ve had
          Our silent times.
