~ Three Words – my current Writing Piece

Three Words

Three words the hardest

2 to suggest

1 not to miss

 

Hearts have been broken

Lives the token

Desires awoken

When three words are spoken

 

Igniting the soul

frailty calls for whole

In three words to be told

 

Expressing these three words

Brings richness, not absurd

Life in proper perspective

Is cherishing three words

receptive

 

Try not to cheapen its meaning

Of habitual stripped from gleaming

Three words revere

Hold them near

Cling to them

Bear

 

Volunteer to their heed

Allow their soil to

Seed

The extension of their Wings

when another their word

brings

 

In the form of its second word

A new life is birthed

Capturing the ripples

Of the these three words

 

Struggle not to express

as three words to undress

They are a light to those

Who hear

A candle forever to flair

 

Live in them and offer

The intimacy they proffer

Our Creator alone gave

Those three words that He may

Save

 

Lye in three words peace

Carry them as your fleece

Conceive them to revive

Cleave them to survive
