Sweet Nothings - Poem by Jan Alwyn Grajo

Small phrases in a day;
Hi, How do you do? Take care
Words as light as feathers
Phrases that weigh so much more

10 seconds,20 seconds
Time moves quickly
As these phrases are uttered
Fluttering in the stream of thought

Words, fragments, sentences
All could say flattery
But few mean sincerity
in the flowing river of sweet nothings

Here I am saying:
Hi, to the one before me
Here are some sweet nothings for you today
Which mean everything from the bottom of my being
From the voice of my soul
As words gently touch the strands of your hair,
As it reaches further to the depths of your heart.

    hi allan,

    I wrote this poem as a greeting to someone. :) If you are really passionate in writing one, you could keep practicing making some dedicated to people you care about to hone your craft. As they say with food, food tastes great when prepared from the heart. Same concept goes with poetry.

    thanks for reading!
