Because you speak, I listen;
because you speak, I care;
not for want another soul,
not utter a word - I dare.

For when you speak, I am ready;
for when you speak, I receive;
to let intrusion interfere,
is not to listen, but deceive.

For you chose me over all the rest
to share what you had to say;
I am honoured to be a part of you,
as grass is to the lea.

For you and I are unity,
the silence does undress;
but because you speak - I listen,
and judge not what you express.

Interesting poem......
I don't know if this is what you meant to acheive by the last two lines, but I get the idea of someone so inlove that they blinly accept whatever the person they love says, instead of judging them from a neutral point of view.
But anyway, great work

This piece is easy reading with a great message. I could tell it truly came from experience. Thank you.

What an affectionate expression of listening. Well done. This is the intimate ear my husband has for me and even more so...God.

I like this one a lot too. Saw a bit of the dark side of love. Not sure if it came from the poem or my reflection. Still enjoyed it!
