Speak

Standard

a simple hello
means the same
as I love you
your silence
says more than
poetry or flowers
you kiss my forehead
after a long day
a moment so brief
yet intimate with
words you don’t
have to speak

Where Peace Resides

Standard

Ink stained hopes
struggle to speak
A dying dream
can find new life
Names call out
“Hear us now!”
Some wash away
others forget
A few hold true
to a lost belief
The door is open
waiting for you

Abbey Road, London, June 2011, c.b.w.
