Words

Why can't I stop smiling

They are just words

Spoken

I heard them

It did not touch me

Not a hair on my body

But it went through my heart

Grabbed it

Squeezed it

Touched my very core

Words

Why can't I stop smiling

They are just words

Spoken

Carried me

Lifted my spirit

Calmed my troubled heart

Eased my sorrow

Lighten the weight I carry

Lit my path

Brighten my world

Words

Why can't I stop smiling

They are just words

Spoken
