Beyond Words

Blessed beyond words
truth is like a bird
with a broken wing,
it cannot fly
but can surely sing

this song calls to me,
the inner voice
of muse speaks
volumes, stitching together
fractured moments of my life
and giving each of them worth

these words bubble up gently
from a place, cool and
deep inside of us all
that is immortal and wise,
their warmth and their light
wash over me to cleanse my
soul and remind me that
in a world the reeks of harshness
we are never fools to be kind

all who seek solace will one day find
in each day a reason to keep smiling
in spite of the world and all its beguiling ways
for it is true, we are blessed beyond words.
