Without Words

I take your hand
to keep you near.
You squeeze mine back
to show me you’re there.
I cuddle in close
when I want to feel safe.
You hold me tight
to make me forget the world outside.
I avoid your eyes
when I want you to stay.
You pretend you don’t notice
but linger a little longer anyway.
I write you songs
to tell you I care,
but the things we say the best
are the ones we say without words.

Prompt: Without Words
