Without a Word, 6-1-10

Without a Word

I can tell when you’re feeling happy,

You’re eyes are so full of glee,

You could never keep any secret,

So don’t try to hold back on me!

When you’re sad, I know in an instant,

Though a tear doesn’t fall from your eye,

I think it might be cathartic,

If you’d actually break down and cry.

If you’re rageful, you hold it inside,

But I know it when others do not,

When I’m angry, there’s never a doubt,

I yell with all that I’ve got!

You seldom tell me you love me,

Without a word, I know that you do,

You show me in all of your actions,

Your feelings are eternal and true.
