Hay(na)ku for NaPoWriMo Day 27

Today's prompt on the NaPoWriMo website challenges us to write a Hay(na)ku aka Hay Naku (the word originates in the Tagalog language, and the "h" is silent). This type of poetic form was invented by Eileen R. Tabios.

The first line comprises one word, the second line two words and the third three words. There are no rules in regards to rhymes or syllable count. So, the whole poem is only six words long, but you can string multiple haynaku together to create a longer poem.

Critics might say it's just writing a short sentence with weird line breaks, but hey, I don't make the rules :-)

Guess my theme, lol

love silently
with their eyes.

comfort those
who live alone.

know more
than they admit.
