Love Me with Your Words

Copy of Picture 547

Love me with your words.

You feel it in your heart and know it in your head,

but across miles, I can’t feel it.

I can’t feel it in pithy quotes and Youtube samples,

FB funnies and brain-teasing games.

I can’t feel it in expensive gifts or discount flowers.

Silence is a wall, trapping in and trapping out,

and I can’t read your mind, so

love me with your words.

    • I think many of us take for granted what is never voiced, and folks live and die without hearing affirmation. It all is said in front of coffins when the loved one can’t hear it. Thinking those thoughts today.

    This says it all – in the right words. And that first sky photo is awesome!
