What I Want My Words To Do To You

What I want my words to do to you

You see

I want them to love and understand

I want them to lend a helping hand

I want them to say you are not alone

Many of use have gone through the same thing

Sometime we let things get the best of us

We loose it


I want to let you know

None of us are perfect


What I want my words to do to you

I want them to help you heal

So you can deel

Deel with the pain

It's a shame that we don't have the help needed to succeed

WE have to learn to cry

So we wont die


WE hide

Hide behind the past

We have to realize that what happend to to us when we were too little to know wrong is not our fault

We have to learn to take the past of wrong and hurt and use it as feual for the future


What I want my words to do to you

I want them to make you smile

So you can go the extra mile

I want then to make you strong

So you can steir from wrong

I want them to be an alarm

So you can run away from harm

I want then to be warm

For when you encounter a storm


What I want my words to do to you

I want them to give you hope

So you can make it up that slope

I want them to help you see, see that you are not alone

I want them to be foreveretched in your heart, so that you will remember that nothing or no one can tear you apart.


I want them to help you realize that it is ok to have a friend

A friend to confide in

Far to many of us do not have a close nit family to turn to


I want my words to be there for you

It's funny how we want out words to mean and do a lot. They are nothing more than words, though, and can't do actions. Behaviors are there to do it. Without these behaviors words become hollow and knifes of deceit. I just hope more people would back up what they say with their actions as I've seen you do.
