Words of a Lifetime
Words of a lifetime, what will they be?
Sharp? Gentle? Constrained, or free?
Will they bring back tender memories,
Or a harsh word ill conceived?
A nice word fitly spoken,
A rebuke or a whine;
What will one remember,
When one thinks back in time?
Be careful oh tongue, what you say,
A harsh word will drive someone away.
Will to be sweet, don't let your will sway;
God will reward you in heaven someday.
