A Drivel of a Kind (2)

These days, I'm quite "at peace" with long words
Having "grown old" accustomed to seeing and using
Them. Now I "dig 'em," because using them
(To serve my purpose), I really, really feel
Again (frankly and honestly), all the words
(Written and spoken) that I love the most are really
The easiest to put down (and keep in mind and heart)
On paper, and through on screen:
"God," "mom," "dad," and "you." And--please,
Please know that "you" is not just "another word,"
Or a word for me...subjectively.
"You" is "the word" and "the reason"
Why I say, "I am, because you are."
