Words Gently Spoken

You canít tell sometimes when a word is sent.
Where it will land or where it went.
Words travel from mouth to ear.
If it be of happiness , joy or fear.

It could pierce the heart of your best friend.
Before it lands or comes to an end.
You canít always tell what the action will bring.
Your words in many ears will ring.

Think before you sow that seed.
Is it a flower or a weed.
Words are as seeds planted in the ground.
They grow and grow and are spread around.

Words float gently on the wind like wings of a dove.
Are your words of hate or are they of love?
What goes around comes around in all that you say and do.
Know when you speak your words come back to you.
