Words

Words

Words.

You have life.

The joys, the sorrows,

the grumblings, the rumblings

the highs, the low.

I feel all;

because,

I feel you.

 

But.

Feel I the most

when you are not there!

 

Words,

you are wonderful!

You make it possible

to share what is held;

The joys, the sorrows …..

 

But.

The experience

when you are not there!

Is there!

Is alive.

This you cannot share, O Words!

It gave you life!

You are dear to me;

Through you,

I saw the One behind you!

Which binds you like beads in a necklace.

The invisible thread which holds you!

Because of you,

I saw.

And, It is that which I feel!
