Gentle words that comfort and heal;
Varied expressions to say how we feel
True and authentic to share what is real;
Words softly spoken or said with zeal.
Kindly words to help us draw near;
Love and affection that hold us so dear;
Articulation of passion so clear;
Meant to strengthen and keep us from fear.
But hurtful words should not be said;
Ones spoken with malice, hatred or dread.
Let all that we communicate be led
By honor and love, peacefully spread.
