That inspired moment,
the moment that seemed to stop in time,
when there were so many things I wanted to say, yet,
none of them would come out.
Silence stole the spotlight,
but there was a shared comfort in that quiet.
in that muted moment,
when the silence was deafening,
that I didn’t need to say anything.
My words needed no sound.
The emotion in my reticence spoke volumes.
And in that breath of repose,
everything I wanted to tell you,
you already knew.
