“Useful is what you are to me” she said,
As I help her solve some of her problems.
She used the words: gentle, regal and great mostly.
I felt more like royalty about that.
Again, I pray I never lose you.
Although there was something dubious about the loss,
Never you, but they were words I chose too.
Each time she said “useful” and “never”,
I thought I’m clever.
I guess those are “Words that matter to me.”
