Words Unspoken

I wrote this in April 2016. It doesn’t look like I’ve published this before so I’m sharing it now.

Words Unspoken

What good are words unspoken?
Left only in my head.
What good is love unshared?
Except for feelings of regret.

I could have said I love you.
I could have said I cared.
I should have opened my mouth.
But instead I sat and stared.

You cannot know your value.
You cannot know your worth.
If the things I feel I leave inside,
as if hidden under earth.

It doesn’t take much effort,
just a moment of compassion.
What good are words unspoken?
What good comes from inaction?

When it’s too late to tell you –
and now I fear it is.
What good are words unspoken?
Words unspoken is love missed.
