There is a secret whispered
by candlelight at night
Where hush and silence fall
To still the words that might
Destroy it with a single word
Though lips they part in vain
To voice the soundless mystery
In which it must remain
To give it breath
Is taking from
Those to which it’s dear
And holding it for just themselves
In attitude of fear
We must treasure free from doubt
Yes free from jealous thought
Or casually dispense with all
Our treasured tears have bought
– Kairos
