A Word

A word came into my life today,
and it was totally brand new.
It caused me to stop and think
of what I was about to do.

It made me realize
that words can change a life,
Their entrance can bring about
the beginning or ending to strife.

Spoken in just a moment,
at the proper time and place,
a word can make a difference
of winning or losing a race.

For good words are treasures,
golden nuggets received along the way
hold them close ,dearly,
for they can truly make your day.

And then, when the time is right,
choose to let those good words go,
and right into the life of another
some goodness you will sow.
