I offer you my silence.

In it is understanding and patience.

I will wait for you to be ready to speak,

there is no clock.

My silence is not a prompt to speak,

it is a hand accepting your hand.

Words are unnecessary

until you wish to speak them.

I do not need your words,

you do.

Let them unfold when they are ready.

For now, I give you my silence.

Be at peace beside me.
