Upon the moistened lips they lie;
unspoken words anxious to fly.
Stretching forth across the page;
engaging breath,take center stage.

Vintage words flow from the mind;
taking flight,give way to rhyme.
Cling to life,to be transposed;
into a poem,or loving prose.

Perhaps they'll brighten someones day.
Revive a memory along the way.
Golden words, they play their role;
when placed together become the soul.

Yes Lorraine, they are simply words, until someone can weave them into the enlightening prose as you have done here. I enjoy this poem.
