Words Poem by Laurence Overmire


Words have no meaning in the language of the heart

No sound
No syllable
No lettered thought

Can express the something
That dwells within the mirrored maze
Of human feeling

Only a touch
A look
A silent tear

Tells all
That can be told.

    What wise words. The poem never said is often the most beautiful poem of them all.

    Beautiful, Laurence! A touch, a look, a tear can mean so much more than words.
