Where Has All the Wisdom of Your Words Gone?

By: Diane M Raab

Your words held all of the answers
Their wisdom filled the empty chasm in my soul
Their strength bound together the very web of my existence

I don't know what to say
Your words no longer comfort me
They make me feel like a lost, beaten child
Their once admirable strength now slaps me into submission

What happened to the beautiful words of wisdom
You used to heap upon me?
Have they fluttered away like all the beautiful spring butterflies?
Or do they lay dormant,
waiting for a "better" me?

Will you tell me, if you can?
Where has all the wisdom of your words gone?
