If it’s unfair,
Could you soften it
Before you deliver?
If it’s unkind,
Could you polish it
Before you utter?
If it’s in anger,
Could you let your scowl
Do all the talking?
If it’s pleasing,
Could you let your smile
Show you’re happy?
If it’s in love,
Could you let your eyes
Tell the story?
Only if it’s kind
Let the words flow,
Slow and gentle, meaningful
Also if it’s soothing 
Or to offer comfort
Let them flood 
Like a river into sea
Like a storm,
Incessant and free…
