If I Could Hear

If I could hear what you wanted to say,
I might say what you wanted to hear;
And that my words could drive you away,
Is such an overwhelming fear.

For your friendship is much more precious,
Than all the treasure of the deep blue sea;
And amidst a world so vicious,
Your friend is all I want to be.

So, I'd rather say what is meant to
Convey an encouraging thought,
Than express all that I want to
About all of the battles fought. 

For I am truly so blessed
By all that you are to me.
And I'll always wish you the very best
Of all that ever could be.

On Social Media - My Take

O the social media irony,
Of a world within my phone:
Whether in a crowd or in company,
I can be busy all alone.

Hiding from someone, next to us,
We seek attention from afar:
And with all the likes and all the fuss,
Forget who we really are.

Now, you may think that I'm old-fashioned,
When I cringe at words misspelt,
But the reason I'm so passioned
Is how language with cruelly is dealt.

You could say things with an emoji,
To someone near or far;
And you might conserve your energy,
Doing that from where you are:

But when it comes to chatting,
I believe in face to face;
And a good old friendly meeting,
Well, nothing takes its place.

Messaging is a great invention,
But if I were given a choice,
I'd prefer to see you in person,
Or to at least hear your voice.
