Words from Me to You

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU_www_001

When words pour out from me to you,

my heart intent is that they’re true.

The words begin from a pure source

then seem to travel on a course

that winds through places where they could

pick up sticks and stones and mud.

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU_www_002

It’s my intent, my heart and will

to give from waters deep and still.

Yet if you find the water’s brown

I ask that you don’t throw it down,

but hand it gently back to me,

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU_www_003

so I can filter it and see

that pure waters nourish life

and muddy waters end in strife.

May what I say be what will heal

and may it be heartfelt and real.
