Words For The Desperate

A lot of folks seem desperate these days.
Sadness and depression weigh them down.
A loved one gone, a pet passed on.
Always something gnawing at them.

But thatís why there are words!
Words of encouragement, words of imagination!
Like, what does a caterpillar think while developing inside itís cocoon?
Does it dream like we do? Do they dream of flying perhaps?

The whispers of the willow in summertime comfort my soul.
Or what about the warmth of the sun on the lush green grass?
I sit down to daydream under the willow as the branches tickle my nose.
Where is your favorite place to be?

Does music soothe your soul with memories of tunes from long ago?
I consume my morning coffee as I listen to the past.
I reminisce of springtime goslings following their mother on the calm green pond.
The spring was chilly that day as I remembered my favorite songs, I have many.
