    Not A Word

    They sat across each other, not a single word was said
    But he could see there was something off, something going on in her head
    He asked if she was okay, if there was a problem
    She shook her head and smiled, but still looked so solemn
    So he got up from his chair, and gave her a hug
    Taken aback, she broke down and cried
    She was hurt, torn, broken inside
    She didn't want a lecturer
    Not someone to advise her
    She just wanted a friend, someone to count on
    A friend she could trust, bank her hopes on
    Now he went back and sat in his chair
    And they ate their dinner, without a word being said there.
