Words, Sweet Powerful Words - Poem by Nikki Richards

Smokelike and hazy, words drift through my dreams
Like, forever, I love you, and you're all that I need
Sweet promises given, sweet promises made
Sweet memories of love that I'll never trade

All words...merely words, but oh, the power they hold
They cannot be measured by diamonds or gold
Those warm treasured words take me back deep in time
To a magical place when you were still mine

It's all up to us, which words we retain
The ones that bring joy, or the ones that bring pain
So, I choose to remember the ones that bring smiles
I've tucked them all deep in my memory's files

On nights when I drift on a warm sleepy cloud
I hear them again as they're whispered aloud
No need for sad memories when far more were great
I'd trade not one moment, no matter the fate
