My Lover's Voice

My lover's voice
speaks softly, kindly
when I'm frightened or sad,
laughs with me over silly things
no one else would find
particularly funny,
whispers tenderly to me of touch,
of skin upon skin,
when we're curled up closely
in the dark blanket of night.

My lover's voice
sings to me of love
even in silence,
when I look into those eyes
and see something that no words,
no matter how beautiful,
could ever come close to saying.
Nothing is as sweet to me
as my lover's voice
whispering "I love you"
followed by my name.
