The Weight of a Word

Words are easily spoken

But don’t weigh the same.

Some are frivolous

Others cause pain.

Three little mighty words

Are often said.

Without action they should be

Left unsaid, instead.

If spoken true, I love you,

Conquers fears.

But when said without feeling,

It burdens with tears.

I am sorry sticks on the tongue,

Refuses to come out.

But the phrase is a healer

Without a doubt.

Three words that free the spirit

Till it soars anew –

It takes courage and strength to say

I forgive you.

Six letters and two words

The small what if

Weighs a soul down and is

Hard to live with.

Four powerful phrases whether

silent or heard –

Who can determine the exact

weight of a word?
