Neglected Poems – No. 8 – Whisper The Words

Monday 23rd March

And now for something completely different – a happy poem.  Must have had an off day…

Whisper The Words

Whisper the words, don’t say them out loud

Whisper you love me if you aren’t too proud

Your breath soft like honey seeps into my heart

It sweetens and lightens the dark dingy parts

Whisper you love me, don’t shout it out loud

Put your lips to my ear, I’ll imagine the sound

This night is so silent, this room is so still

I’ll whisper the words, I promise I will

If you whisper the words, say them soft to the moon

Watch as they hover and drift back so soon

I’ll whisper them too, we won’t make a sound

As we whisper the love we’ve suddenly found
