The silent moments between us used to be unbearable
Now, I savor the opportunity to cherish you
To completely devote myself to the ease of your laughter
The careful way you choose your words

I close my eyes and I feel myself reach toward you
My hands eager to capture every curve of your face
To brush my fingers through your hair
Recapturing the intimacy we tried to restrain

You meet my eyes and everything inside of you
whispers my name like a prayer, it is clear and unwavering
The distance between us is closed and I hear your declaration

And we both sigh in relief
