Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you
Near to me.
Don't ever let me find you gone, cause that would
Bring a tear to me.
This world has lost it's glory, lets start a brand
New story now, my love.
Right now, there'll be no other time and I can show
You how, my love.
Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to
And I will give you all my life, I'm here if you
Should call to me.
You think that I don't even mean,
A single word I say.
It's only words, and words are all I have, to take
Your heart away

You can even try to take a word and start to play with it and see what happens. This is an application within something called “transderivational morphology”. By adding prefixes or suffixes you start to shift your internal response to words that constrain or limit you. Even replacing words can do this ... like replacing but for and.
And there is remedy in words. Mind over matter ... deliberate focus of your mind over a situation can guide your thoughts and body into feelings of peace and tranquility. We receive messages into our subconscious and conscious minds and they make all the difference in our well-being journey. Really ask yourself what words are being used, what are the messages you are being told and what are you paying attention to?
I feel words need to be intentionally positive, comforting, compassionate to help guide us all in the way we want to feel. I hope to live on purpose and manifest my words into the reality I want ...
