Words of Mine


I’ve given you all, my humble words

I’ve given you, my hidden soul

Words trickling, through cool mountain streams

Words dripping off the frozen ashen trees

Words gliding across the icy lakes

Words of love, drowning in the memory rains


I’ve given you all, my inner self

I’ve given you, my outer grief

Words Tumbling over the embedded rocks

Words twisting along the winding rivers

Words cascading down the forest waterways

Words sifting through my empty hands


I’ve given you all, my lonely heart

I’ve given you, my secret loves

Words of life, living under the vast oceans

Words of time, travelling to the stars beyond

Words flowing through happiness, and sorrow

Words of mine, falling dreams of tomorrow
