When Someone Listens

"A friend is someone who listens when you speak, understands when you cry and guides you on your way." ~Thomas Eappen
When someone deeply listens to you
it is like holding out a dented cup
you've had since childhood
and watching it fill up with
cold, fresh water.
When it balances on top of the brim,
you are understood.
When it overflows and touches your skin,
you are loved.

When someone deeply listens to you
the room where you stay
starts a new life
and the place where you wrote
your first poem
begins to glow in your mind's eye.
It is as if gold has been discovered!

When someone deeply listens to you
your barefeet are on the earth
and a beloved land that seemed distant
is now at home within you

— John Fox

  3. Very poignant dear Coreen, I have often found that I need only someone to listen, not to offer advice or change my world - simply just listen.;))
