The Gift of Words November 16, 2016

The gift of your words

Continues to reverberate

Through me

Long after they are read

 

Words that stir up

Cherished memories

Long forgotten in

My brain’s dusty nooks

 

Words that incite me

To take up arms

And remind me

I am a warrior woman

Capable and strong

 

Words that whisper

That I am human

With great depth of feeling

And that vulnerability

Alone cannot kill me

 

Words that connect me

To others who share

My dreams, my hopes

My fears

That declare “You are not alone”

 

Words that affirm for me

That I am seen

Understood

Made solid and real

 

Words that comfort and sooth

My soul’s harsh edges at

The end of a long

Hard day

 

Words that so perfectly capture

My internal landscape

That I could have written them

I am filled with the knowledge

That unique does not mean alone

 

Thank you sincerely

For this gift of your words

This outpouring of letters

And syllables

 

Has moved me

You have unknowingly

Gifted me

A stranger

With the world
