In Words Your Parents Spoke

If you hold a heart that sings secret songs

closely to your ear,

you can hear the words your parents spoke

when your father drew your mother near.


If you hold the hand that took too long,

the one that seems too far,

you can tell who loves you, who does not

and who you really are.


If you hold your mind at arm’s length –

away from your shaking chest,

you can speak a single word of strength

and say,

“In me alone is my love created and so, it is blessed.”

  1. So happy to see you are blogging more regularly now! You have inspired me so much to blog my prose 🙂

  2. Can I put a melody and some stuff to this? I’ll credit you. Not many people will see it but I wanted to make sure it was ok…
