Words, Wonder-full Words

Writer's Digest PAD Challenge: Words unsaid.

On those days
When I am sure
That I will die,
Killed by words
Says something
To keep me
And on those days
When words wax cold
And I think
I am nearly dead
Along comes someone
With a gift
Of words I wish
I would have

“You can do it”
“I love you”
“I like you”
“I care”
“I’m listening”
“Are you okay?”
“Can I help?”
“Don’t give up”
“I’m praying for you”
“I understand”
