Whisper in my ear
ever so softly how you truly feel —
I really yearn to know,
for nothing is as important as that which is real.
Please do not assume that your words
are words I already know,
for if it were true, my reason to exist
would be as weak as the winds that fail to blow.
Be assured that as the heart hears whispers,
it can do little else except respond —
and in return, I will tell you how I feel,
and together our whispers will confirm a true and loving bond.
