Lover of Words

Spread the love

valentine-fortune-cookie-gifts-hdr

You are a lover of words because when you speak;
The heart must pause enough to breathe.
You are a lover of words because when you seek;
The clouds of fear shall suffer defeat.
You are a lover of words with charm replete;
What once acerb transformed to sweet.
Because when lovers of words concur and greet;
The fortune as such maneuvers complete.
