I don’t want to sing your name,
The mountain tops won’t echo
Buildings won’t shake
It won’t be carved in the stucco
I want it all my own
Whispered in the dark
Quiet for my ears
Loud for my heart

You won’t shout my name
Hills will not resound
Birds will not sing
At your joy at the sound
You’ll keep it to yourself
Safe inside your mouth
If no one can guess
No one can doubt

They needn’t know
They needn’t understand
What it is exactly
That makes it so grand
But you are the rail,
I am the road
You are the light,
I am the glow

The author's comments:
The word "love" is over used. Maybe the best way to communicate it and let someone really feel it is to not use the word at all?
