Some say I have a way with words.
When I'm feeling good about myself, I might even agree.
But there are times when I fail,
Far too many times.
I trip and stumble, and fall flat on my face.
I forget to express just how much you mean to me.
I lose confidence or focus, or that piece of humanity I need.
I forget just how special and precious you truly are,
How what we have is so tender and tenuous.
It needs respect and care.
Feel free to remind me to match my words with my deeds.
Keep me more honest than I keep myself.
Remind me that even if they are only words,
Each word I write for you is from my heart.
They are sacred. They are true.
They are for you.
