Independent

Shhh…
Keep still and let my words
quietly touch you

You don’t need to respond in words
But a sigh, a smile is more than enough
My words don’t need no
cheerleaders,
no word for a word
As they speak for themselves
they stand independently
on the paper

For they know they will be heard,
they will be seen, they will be felt
by the one that they are meant
to touch
