Without anyone knowing,
I learn to read with passion.
Without anyone caring,
I caress your binding words.
I hold you close to my heart,
A story in every chapter I read.
I imagine the tales in my mind,
A story of loss and of glory.
Creating a fantasy world,
Where imagination is valued.
Creating a playground for hope,
Where wars do not matter.
I cherish all of your sentences,
Word by word they deliver.
I cherish your unique cover,
Words make up its outer layer.
I steal the silence from your book,
I instill the silence in my soul.
I steal the laughter and the love,
I instill it in my heart as I read.
