No Words

Words I’ve never spoken
are those I’ll never write,
like words that might recall
the glow I felt one night. . . 
One choice lifetime’s fragment
I took for paradise. . . 
and for which memory
alone cannot suffice.

One summer’s whispered end. . .
your feel, your touch, your scent,
your lashes on my cheek,
the pure enrapturement. . .
your hands and hair like silk,
your pause to gaze on me
seem now more illusion
than past reality.

No words can bring to life
the fleeting ghost of you.
You haunt my empty hours;
there’s nothing I can do,
for if you think of me,
I guess I’ll never know.
And how you made me thrill
no words can ever show.

Oh, to be the recipient of such beautiful emotion. I only hope there is someone out there that, just maybe, thinks of me that way... on occasion.

Sometimes, words are not enough. I still say words can never convey, no matter how hard we try, what we are feeling in the depths of our soul. Many congrats on your BIG WIN Andrea. Lainie
