I have never been hurt
by something I did not say
Ah... I wish I could say the same
But I cannot
The 'thanks yous' forgotten
The 'I love yous' left unsaid
The 'well dones' left silent
All of these have hurt me
All of these have diminished me
But no more!
will I be hurt
by things I did not say!
Frederick William Faber said:
Kind words produce much happiness,
How often have we ourselves been made happy by kind words,
in a manner and to an extent which we are unable to explain.
That is so true in my life
and I know in yours as well
and that's poetiquejustis
Gracious words are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
