Like a new leaf in spring turning over the tide
I learnt my first words barely a cry
But as I grew up, so did my words,
They bloomed like the flowers, giving me life.
Then came the summer, where my words grew afresh,
I was eager to face a challenge and even lost some bets,
Never gave up did I, to fight for my way,
My words gave me strength and the courage to be brave.
Autumn came by in a dazzle of gold and red
And thus my heart began to beat in blushes of red
Your sweet words gave me hope and lightened my life
Eager to be with you, I gave you my word for you to be mine.
Years later, on a bleak wintery night,
My words came out cold and uttered a cry
Your words were a whip that lashed me out
Words never to be forgotten and kept me out of your sight.
Funny as it seems, how these words shaped my life
I learned to be strong and carried on my light.
