The eyes are the mirror of the soul
I can draw a picture with merely 100 words.
The image you see will be full of color.
I’ve learned that silence can paint as well.
Without words, I get closer to the truth.

I remember when my heart was cold.
Fierce winds of life had no mercy.
I counted the days until a bleak future.
All of the warmth of love was missing.

Today I have beautiful words for my love.
My life alone had given me dark thoughts.
Now the sun fills my soul with light.

I have found someone to cherish and love.
We are miles apart but our spirits are close.
Silence finally engraved a wonderful image.
