Love is sometimes best expressed through
silence and distance..
There are times that impulsive ways of showing it
will do more danger than good..
For true love seeks the highest good of the other
and not to satisfy the desires of one's self
It is therefore true love to shut one's mouth,
even when the heart so desires to speak...
to remain distant even when the soul longs to be wth the other...
For true love is not mere obedience to a feeling -
it is doing the most righteous thing, by faith for the other
in hope of building the other person up,
even if sometimes it means silence and distance,
