Six Seconds of Silence

Six Seconds of Silence

A Poem by Valerie Hope Woodard
"

A song composed of my "nighttime thoughts"... wrote it a little past 5 am. 23 November 2010

"

The leaves are falling

and so am I

I've been daydreaming

about your eyes

so tall and thin; your silhouette

I'm wondering if you miss me yet

 

Stay up till five

and sleep till three

I keep dreaming of you,

dreaming of me

Everytime I wake

or close my eyes

you seem to be trapped in my mind

 

Then I use my imagination

face to face confrontation

the wind, it blows

the time, it slows

then there is

 

six seconds of silence

lost in the moment here with you

six seconds of silence

your heart beats faster too

six seconds of silence

you place your arms around my hips

six seconds of silence

a fantasy I long to live

six seconds of heavvenly silence on your lips.

 

We talk about peace

and solitude

both sitting under the stars

in serene moods

 

You say it's also true

if you're with the right one

that some midnight company

can be just as fun

 

Then I use my imagination

face to face confrontation

the wind, it blows

the time, it slows

then there is

 

six seconds of silence

lost in the moment here with you

six seconds of silence

your heart beats faster too

six seconds of silence

I can feel your fingertips

six seconds of silence

oh darling what I wouldn't give

for six seconds of heavenly silence on your lips.
