WORDS

Walk with me for a while
And listen to my words
That fall like rain and 
Drench the ground we pace

Talk with me for a mile
And I will watch your words
Spread like butterflies
On this road we grace

Brilliance comes in many ways
In words, in smiles, in deeds
But the greatest brilliance 
Blinds the eye and
Dazzles make shift needs

Words they fall like petals
They carpet all the ground
And in the end their 
Blown away and
Gone without a sound

    Very well done, David! Indeed words are like petals that get blown away unless they are backed up with action.
