It Speaks

Love speaks in a thousand different ways.
The voices of millions say it differently yet the message is the same.

It is sought by the poor, the rich and the middle man.
It is desired by male and female, old and young.

When love speaks and is heard, it defies the rational and the intellect.
It is heard with the heart and felt in the soul.

I say it with words. You say it with touch.
She says it with nurturing. He says it with providing.
We say it with submission. They say it with guidance.

Love speaks in laughter. Love speaks in a glance.
Love speaks with a hand held. Love speaks in a tender caress.
Love speaks with laundry done. Love speaks with oil changed.

Love speaks in silent companionship on nights littered with scattered dreams, broken promises, waste baskets overflowing with soiled tissues.
Love speaks in cheers and applause on days filled with the efforts of teams in blazing hot sun in fields far from home.
Love speaks in careful administration of pills, bandages, meals and bed changes.

Love speaks in a thousand different ways.
It is heard with the heart and felt with the soul.
The voices of millions say it differently yet the message is the same.

    It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I may just I desire to counsel you few fascinating things or advice. Perhaps you could write subsequent articles relating to this article. I want to read more issues about it!
