A Thousand Words


United States

Go to a museum and look at a painting

Observe it carefully…you got it? Good

Now close your eyes and describe the painting

Did it have meaning? How was the technique?

Was the artist famous? Did you feel any emotions?

They say a painting is worth a thousand words

So why can’t you do the same with your partner?

Go on do it to her or him…shouldn’t be too hard

Always give that special someone compliments

A painting maybe a thousand words worthy

But you special one is worth a life time of words

Don’t make my mistake…always make them feel needed

Because you never know when she or he will leave

And you will live a life with regret and misery
