I want my words to make you laugh
Make you see the world in a new way.
To make you understand that even in the darkest corner
You can still find light.
I want my words to give you hope,
To make you think ahead.
To make you wonder.
I want my words to make you feel the wind on your face
The sun in your hair
The ground underneath your feet
I want my words to attack you
In a way that attaches you to them
Makes you want to follow them
Makes you trust them
I want my words to make your heart swell
Your cheeks blush
Your eyes water
I want my words to insert themselves
Into your memory
I want you to remember my words
Look back on them
I want my words to fill up the night sky
To reach the stars
To shape and mold your character
Make you think twice
For if my words can do this
Then we can both feel the same about life
And if we both feel this way
Then I will always be in your memory
Whether it be on the page
Or in the atmosphere
Or in the ground below
