Words, Oh Sweet Words

Oldfield, Brenda M



Words, oh sweet words

You brighten me, and you enlighten me
You care to be spoken
Whilst embracing me, to listen

Words, oh sweet words

Your essence in harmony, animates my motions,
Which synchronise images, of your timeless notions
Thus, your melody sings, an echo of mine
The rhythms I be, sculpt, a silhouette of thine

Words, oh sweet words

Your poetic charms, solidify, my keynote affections
Soothed, by a stillness, in your lucid dimensions
Ah, your splendour in meaning, truly comforting
The tenderness, in your gentle tones, deeply touching

Words, oh sweet words

Youíre music to my ears, like the joys, of my youth
Understandingí, is the maestro, of your truth,
Composing my bliss, brighter than, the stars above
Aye, my wisdom is awakened, by your lingo of love

Words, oh sweet words

You are the harvest, nourishing my will
Seducing my thoughts, like an open daffodil
Refining my goodness, in stormy kinships
Securing my needs, connecting my friendships

Words, oh sweet words

As you synthesise, my imagination leaps
When youíre playful, I laugh in hearty heaps
Console and I devour, your healing delights
Unite and I inhale, your energising insights

Words, oh sweet words

Without you, how could I,
Create a lullaby, classify and simplify
Hear my senses, or write these lines, so inclined
Even caress my emotions, and placate my mind

Words, oh sweet words

Oh yes, you set me free, to communicate
Neither good nor bad, you just create,
But, only manís follies, deem you so
Eclipsed only, by your resplendent flow

Words, oh sweet words

Without you, who could I be? A loud bore
Gibbering without heed, like some squealing boar
Ah, what would I do? Rally, on my tenterhooks,
For your symbols in life, in kindness, and in books

Words, oh sweet words

Because of you, I can breathe
Mankindís highest joys, thus you bequeath
A symbiosis, despite my greed, to hear thy guide
Rendering me a voice, so together we abide

I live by you! I am you! Oh sweet, incarnate words
