Love Needs No Words

Love Needs No Words Big, blue eyes smile at me
And little arms extend up, fingers outstretched
Reaching for me, like I encompass the whole world –
These things say more than a conversation ever could.

You come to me, take my hand, and guide me
To sit beside you
And enjoy your favorite show
Or just sit, holding hands –
These things say more than a conversation ever could.

You run, run, run across the house –
Running laps with arm flaps –
And suddenly take a turn.
I can hear your feet thud-thud-thud on our hard floors.
You run into my arms and give me a hug and a kiss.
You may never say more than a word or two
But your laugh and your ooh’s and aah’s, your babbles and squeals,
Are music to my ears.
