whispers on wings

Have you ever met someone and thought, I wish we’d know each other
when we were young
in school
or maybe we did
but not well
how did I not know
you

before this

ever wondered if things would be different
had we somehow known more
about love

or friendship

and how to recognize it
better

or sooner

what would have happened
if
you had said the right words
at the right time

or heard them

can you remember
a time
when we smiled and said
hello
but the moment passed
before
we had the courage
to say more

what if we’d thought to be
kinder
or
braver
or
smarter

what is the nicest thing you could say to someone
or hear them say
to you

and why pass up the opportunity
to say
it

now is the time…

I really like you
I love you
I appreciate you
I admire you

you
have made me smile

and
Thank you

a butterfly comes to land on a leaf
of the vine that grows beside me
whispers and words
attach themselves to
her wings

and then she goes

taking all kindness
and my gratitude
to
you

whispers on wings
with
love  ♥
