The Whisper

.........I see her soft lips form a word.
My heart hinged 
on the precipice ,
of an abyss,
as I try to  ensnare the sound.
A pin dropping,
 shatters the silence,
ringing in my ears.
The world around me rushes by.
Somewhere ,
a lone siren  wails.
Empty silence,
without the music off her voice
a life devoid of sound.
Enchantment  is alive again,
a spark ,
that sets the soul to flame, 
 of the word left unspoken.
She draws closer,
smiles ,
in her funny little way.
Whispers in my ear,
simply ,
I love you.
