AT A LOSS FOR WORDS

I'm at a loss for words,

Oh, how it hurts

When you can't say

What you want to say!

*

My vocal cords won't vibrate,

And now it is too late

To transfer my thoughts to you:

Now what am I to do?

*

I am struck utterly dumb.

I can't squeak; can't hum

All because I am at a loss

For words.
