The written word

So absurd

This written word

Used by many to be heard

Or seen

For who we really are

Pen to paper

And there we are

You write you an inside

Just so you can get it out

You speak of your song

You share your doubt

You express feelings of love

And if loss you do confide

You wrote this word

And bring me to your side

You share a thought

And faith and hope collides

You write these words

And I can hear

Your message

From inside
