With or without your words

Your words?
They made me look.
i'll admit that, no pretenses.

But no,
They're not the hook.
i'll take - happily - your silences.

You see,
It's not the words so warm
That you so deftly spin

No,
It's where they come from
That wonderful heart within.

So,
When they won't play,
When tears, not words, glisten,

Come,
When you have nothing to say,
i'll be here, to listen.

superb, Peter, superb.

(Just glancing at this Jugalbandi for 1st time. Annie's likewise excellent -- both showing acute sense of form / thought / diction.)
