Words won’t come as they should but I’ll wrap you in something bigger
Enclose you in the only embrace I know -
My quiet listening heart

I will study your face until your eyes
and wrinkles tell me the story you can’t speak
because it
hurts that much

In your adversity I will share with you
There is comfort in breathing, there is comfort
in knowing someone else is there

Because I am,

I am.
