What I Said

 

Whatever people say that works

and is not trite or mundane, I send

to you with energy and feeling.

Wherever you need to be when this

note arrives, be there with empathy

as passion and a ready sigh because

I send you that which will make you

pause and exhale long and thoughtfully.

 

Instead I send this wish

that is far amiss of what I mean

with this labor that builds far

less than intended. If ever I

learn to write down words that

are the emotion of shared hours,

then accept these trifling letters

that fall short of my goal, arranged

in a series that will not conform

to the thoughts I create and can

not make.
