Words that touch our souls and spirits,
Sweet cotton candy words bringing smiles.
Terms that alter our ideas about ourselves,
Because they are truth, and they use no wiles.
Expressions like unique, priceless, and lovely
Come straight from our loved ones hearts,
Making our self-confidence bloom like flowers,
And our belief in ourselves never departs.
Speak soul words to someone you love today,
Quench their thirst with your loving grace.
Tell them that they are loved and needed,
And they are the best of the human race.
Poem written for the Saturday Mix, Mad about Metaphors, March 2, 2019. Use the metaphor: cotton candy words. Still working on getting better on writing poetry.
