Quiet

I’ll probably love you too much

And not show it enough

I won’t say it out loud

But listen carefully

 

When I hum the tune of

Your favorite song

To complement the quiet

As we drive toward the beach

In the middle of the night

 

Listen when my breath

Slows down as it finds

A home on your chest

Syncing to the rhythm of yours

While I drift into dreams

 

Listen when I say your name

In a voice as soft as rose petals

Just because I like the sound

Of it rolling off my lips

 

I’ll probably love you too much

And not show it enough

I won’t say it out loud

So listen carefully
