I like you when you are quiet ......

let me fall quiet with your own silence


Let me also speak to you with your silence

Clear like a lamp, simple like a ring.

You are like the night, quiet and constellated.

Your silence is of a star, so far away and solitary....

I like you when you are quiet...

(From:  "I Like You When You Are Quiet" by Pablo Neruda)
