Silent Love


Love is to;

sit silently; listen.

Sometimes it just to sit.

Love is to look through black and white glasses,

only to see colour.

Love is to break down walls, move boundaries,

to fly over the unknown, together.


is sometimes just to be quiet.

Die liefde is soms om in stilte net te sit,

te luister. Of soms, om sommer net te sit.

Die liefde,

is om deur ‘n bril van wit en swart te kyk,

en kleur te sien.

Liefde is om mure af te breuk, grense te verskuif,

om saam oor die onbekend te vlieg.

Die liefde,

is soms net stil.
