I was walking past this group of men, sitting outside a cigar store, on my way to dinner. As I passed we struck up a conversation on how cool it was to be hanging out with friends on a beautiful summer evening. Then they played and sang this song for me. This was one of those times when you know that things couldn’t be any better than the moment you are in.

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
~Lennon/McCartney

Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses
