Conversations long-remembered past their blooming day
mend a heart that's broken or in muddled disarray.
Can we know the value of a sentimental note
saved by one who's touched by simple sentences we wrote?
In some treasured volumes, language speaks beyond the years
sharing thoughtful glimpses, tracing others' hopes and fears.
Tiny snippets of a life of one who's walked before,
captured in quotations, still can touch our inner core.
Spoken and remembered, or just written down in verse,
cordial, warm and wonderful, or sometimes very terse,
words are taken to the heart where each can leave its mark
forming everlasting love or hatred, deep and dark.
Can we add true meaning to each valued written word?
How we are remembered may depend on why we're heard.
Pure communication that can scar or make one whole,
words are but conduit for reflections of the soul.
