Words Spoken - Poem by Patricia Grantham

Kind words spoken is like health to the dry bones
If given with love and cheer and not with undertones
Like a cool drink of water that refreshes the arid soul
Bubbling up like a fountain filling the top of the bowl

Given freely from the heart without any kind of measure
Worth more than gold and silver or whatever the treasure
Brings a cheery countenance that lights one up with a smile
Not ever given with deceit nor meant with any kind of guile

As you go along your journey try spreading a word of cheer
Per chance might be an Angel that was sent to meet you there
When you're at your lowest point and you feel so all alone
An Angel will appear to you sent down from Heavens throne
