No Words Are Needed


Recommended Posts

Her popping up a question, 'Do you still write poems?' 
is like opening up a path to a river that could lead into some falls,
'I still do' was my reply.

I could hear the rushing waters off a cliff, as she moved around
to peer at me asking 'Do you still write about me?'
'I still do' was my reply.

'All the words you wrote,' she said, ' and the love 
and passion in them, are for no other but me?'
Yes, and they still do.

I can see the rushing river towards the falls,  when she asked, 
'Will you fall with me once more to unknown depths?',
No words are needed for a reply.

(NOTE: This is the poem that dropped in my head one evening from nowhere for our upcoming 35th anniversary. Might need to tweak it still until the anniversary day.)

Lovely! 

Indeed. Love flows like a river and dives into a cascade. And then, it dwells on the plains, and gushes up like a fountain, as the couple become more and more senior.
