Words We Don’t Know

Words We Don’t Know

The words come and go
But the soul knows
There’s so much more we could say

Love comes and goes
But our heart knows
there will soon be better days

Some friends come and go
But in the end
we know that real friends were made

Life can often be slow
but, oh, time goes
and we always love again

We find we must use
words we don’t know
as our muse dances and sways

When toe to toe
with those holding our soul
we pay through the nose for our trade

Our work always grow
but often we’re shown
our best effort is still clay
