Only our spirits can understand beauty
Or live and grow with it.
It puzzles our minds.

We are unable to describe it in words.
It is a sensation
That our eyes cannot see.

Derived from both
The one who observes
And the one who is looked upon.

Speech is not the only means
Of understanding between two souls

It is not the syllables that comes
from the lips and tongues
That brings hearts together

There is something greater and purer
than what the mouth utters

Silence illumintates our souls
Whispers to our hearts, and
Brings them together.
