affection is a better word, by waterlily Subscribe to rss feed for waterlily

affection is a better word
rings more true a sensation for me
at four in the mourning eye hear a bird
singing out so merrily

affection is a better label
sitting at my beading round table
at night when i can knot sleep
eye study jewel tone colors deep

affection is a better sensation
gives me a truer sense of elation
at night when i am sewing with black nymo
thread by hand over hand i study the time oh

affection is a better gift i think
makes me feel my emotions are knot weak
gives me a purer word to speak
out of my singing bird's beak
