All the Lost Words



This is where I came to find

all the lost words I left behind

The things I thought I couldn’t say

The words I dropped along the way

The sentences that circled ‘round

my head, just like a royal crown

All the words I needed “when…”

are in this place where they have always been

The times I stuttered and couldn’t speak

the times my words had left me weak

were just outside my clumsy grasp

locked away in “elsewhere’s” past

But now I have found them and I rejoice

at my new words and my new voice…
