Words.

 

Every word spoken to a friend

Can cause ripples that never end

Reverberations that you can't comprehend

Messages you didn't mean to send.

 

A word can so easily be taken wrongly

Taken as criticism when meant longingly

How to convey a feeling so strongly

Without coming over as giving a homily.

 

It's no easy task to show that you care

When there's no way on earth that you can be there

With expressions and touches it's easy to share

Happiness, joy or even despair.

 

I'll keep trying to find a word that is right

But promise me too that you'll keep up the fight

The future's uncertain but we can delight

By struggling on and continuing to write.
