Silence Speaks Better Than Words

Years have passed by and I am still looking for the
words that would describe my feelings for you.
I searched books of every kind to collect words by which
I could convey to you what I actually felt when I first saw you.
Word by word I collected my thoughts about you and when
I looked at them I felt they are not more special than my silence.
Because I know you understand my silence better than my words,
you always have felt my unspoken emotions, my untold griefs, and my unexpressed pains.
So I decided to just remain silent as my silence reaches your
heart much faster than my words reach your ears.
