Because you were there

Because the silence

Of your stare

Had made me unaware

And because

The silence

Of this night

Would be a word

That your heart

Could not whisper

Or speak tonight

It could’nt change



The way I feel inside.

Oh so much longing and so much sadness John...  Beautifully done with the sadness in the rhythm and words.  Good job my dear.
