Don't Ruin the Silence

You are the one
I've been hoping for all my life,

you are the one
I'd adore to be my wife,

In the silence
I can hear your heartbeat,

and, I can hear the echoes, but not by choice;

when I can't hear your heartbeat,
don't ruin the silence with your voice.

I am the one
you said you'd cling to, with all your might;

I am the one
with whom you hold, throughout the night;

I can hear your voice
so loud, in the echoes, through the tears,

when I can't hear your heartbeat

don't ruin the silence, with your ears.
