~ Kind Words

Kind words don’t come easy,
How well I do know;
For how often have I
Rehearsed each word in my mind,
So that each would be said
At the appropriate time.
Words can be like sunshine;
Words can be like dew,
So that flowers of friendship
Will blossom for you;
But words never spoken
Are words never heard.
Don’t say she should know
If you’ve said not a word.
Those words are like presents;
They show that you care;
And even their memory
Can ward off despair.

Those words are like presents; They show that you care; Excellent writing shared on desk. Everybody is deeply touched by kind words. Nice job done.
Words can be like sunshine; Words can be like dew, So that flowers for friendship Will blossom for you; ........................ How beautifully said in these lines. Why can't we say kind words, instead of hurting words? As i said in my new post about kindness..It is a short cut to heaven.. Well said, Adeline..
Sometimes Kind words do come easy, Adeline. If the mind is not too burdened. A lot of kind words are in my mind after reading your poem - so pure and simple beauty in a poetical form. I just readed some of your poems. Kind words sometimes come easy...
Nicely said Adeline, David
Wisely said. Words can make or break, they say. We have the choice to say something that uplifts, or something that puts down. Why not choose kind words indeed.
