If they asked me, I could write…

Well, maybe not a book,

But at least a poem, yes, a poem,

Maybe not about the way you walk,

And whisper, and look…

But about the way you are,

Simply the way you are.

Can I put it into words,

Such a precious, poignant thing?

A wordless, silent poem

Will have to do…

  1. Loved it!! And the song!! I like what you did with it. It is truly about what you are and not the how you look thing!!! (Luckily for me!!!)

  2. Thanks, Pat! I’m not surprised that you “got” it. 🙂

  3. I’ve heard of that song, but can’t remember how it goes!
