Right Here

I may not be

a great friend,

for I don’t know

how to rescue you

from self-doubt,

but I make sure

that you never

feel invisible

in the crowd

by being the one

who is all ears

without you

having to shout-

you never do.


“I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that’s why.”
John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men

  1. I am mostly invisible so I appreciate that you have tuned ears so that I can whisper a comment in the wisps of sorrow’s fog. Only tell me that if I hum, you will sing, because loneliness is an awful thing.

    1. I love how eloquently you have expressed it – our desire and right to be heard! I hope and pray that we always have such people in our lives. I hope that we get to be such people in someone else’s lives! Thank you for your insightful comment.
