Canyon Country, CA
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.
