Can I Have A Word?

A word is more powerful than a thought

So long as that word is thought out

It’s not the way you speak – the inflection, rise and fall

But rather taking time to think before you shout

If you speak what you think and not what you say

In a moment of spontaneous affair

Then you’ll be better equipped to speak with wit

Or have something meaningful to share

A word is more pleasing than a smile

So long as you smile in your head

That way you’ll know the sincerity will show

And you’ll speak the happiness instead

No gesture too large or even too small

Could prepare you for what comes next

But as long as you trust your ability to think

You’ll replace each gesture with text
