A mother’s look that says so much.
A beckoning wave, the silent call;
A look between lovers requiring no words at all.
A tightened fist or a tender embrace,
The gentle caress of a baby’s face.
The elderly couple walking hand in hand,
It’s the unspoken language we all understand.
The sideways glance or dad’s head to toe:
That interrogative look that all girls know.
The gestures that cross every culture and creed,
As ancient as time and powerful indeed.
Friend or stranger, whoever it be,
It’s a sentiment expressed silently.
A hand on the shoulder at the grave side
Or a fathers’s tender expression of pride.
Where joy or pain is deeply heard -
Action speaks louder than word.
1 John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love merely with words or in speech but with actions and in truth.
