The Power of Words from 12/2008

Communication has an intricate ring
Our speech has power to move
But tone and context are everything
Words alone have no love.

A conversation is incomplete
When reduced to words on a screen
Send, receive, text, delete
How do we say what we mean?

Patience is forgotten–answer me NOW
I can’t see you’re busy or such--
When you don’t respond, I assume somehow
You’re unconcerned, I don’t matter much

Without touch, a pause, a smile, a wink
The text cannot possibly say
How much I want for you to think
That your words matter today
