    I lost my word, sometime ago
    They fell from my lips
    And was carried along with the winds blow

    I searched and I pondered
    Looking high and looking low
    I couldn’t for the life of me
    Figure where my words could go

    I thought I lost them
    Way back when
    My joy was stolen
    And my heart was broken

    I searched amongst my many tears
    I peeked behind the dark and lonely
    Thinking maybe my word wasn’t lost but stolen
    By someone I thought to be my one and only

    To love and have lost
    Something more than a mere man
    My words, my mind, my peace
    Blown away like grains of sand

    The capacity to speak of eloquent things
    The ability to think any thought out loud
    The joy of laying pen to paper
    And painting a picture that made even my momma proud


    One day while mourning my loss of word
    They came back to me
    Strong like a musical chord
    What was lost is now found
    What was; can once more be
    For a while I was busy looking for my lost forgotten words
    Then one day
    I looked up and found that my words had
    Found me
