In every relationship, words guide the way. With our words, we honor or dishonor those we love.


 Your fair words honor me 

Words of love and hope 

Of adoration and praise 

Wedded bliss and ever after. 


Days gone by, troubles too 

Times of hunger and of need

Dirty laundry and despair

Stark reality and past due bills.


Your hurtful words dishonor me

Words of anger and of hurt

Accusation and derision

Injured, I cry. Crushed, I weep.


I breathe deep and whisper

Words of ardor and of faith

I lift my voice in prayer

To the restorer of love, I cry.


We reside in separate minds

Days go by and I endure

I hold to hope, in love 

I see your face and pray for you.


Your penitent words honor me

Words of sorrow and remorse

Adulation and desire

Forgiveness is ever yours.


Always honor with your words

Those you love and adore

Life in a moment; brief

Shall pass, but words remain.


I love you, I adore you

I lift up my hands in praise 

To the One who gave me you.

I will honor Him all my days.


With my words I honor you

 My darling, treasured one 

I promise I will love you 

As long as God allows.

I agree, Betty; words are truly powerful. You offer fine advice in your verses here. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
