Words Get In The Way

He spoke to share what was upon his heart but something seemed wrong. The longer he spoke the less he communicated. A famous St. Francis of Assisi quote crossed my thoughts, “preach the gospel at all times and when necessary use words”. In our culture this concept seemed like a lost treasure. My heart hurt for this man and so many like him. Leaning my head back I could hear words from a song begin to play in my mind.

There’s so much I want to say

But it’s locked deep inside

and if you look in my eyes

we might fall in love again

I tried to say I love you

But the words get in the way

*Song by Gloria Estefan, Words Get In The Way
