Words are just words
Until somebody listens

What else do we really have?  

If the words themselves

Do not exist 

We can never say 

I love you

Never say I’m sorry

We use them every day

To express




We use them

In crises 

We use them to lie

We use them to cheat 

They hold

Immense power

They can be kind

They can

Break your heart 

Make you shed a tear

And they can also 

Make you smile

And laugh 

For the words themselves

Are a gift

Use them wisely 

And if you use them 

For love

Perhaps then

Someone will
