Empathy

05 Jul

I take your hand in mine
And seek to still your dread
You listen to my words
And know what I’ve not said.

I long to know your pain
And grieve when I do
You feel the dark clouds rise
When hope flows from me to you.

When calm descends at last
I sleep with an easy mind
Swathed in the silken sheets
Which our spirits bind.

      Thanks to you Granny for reaching out to each of us with your lovely narrations that make us smile . If you can spread cheer, that would be empathy at its best.:-)
