    incomparable
    listener to you all the way through..
    l know that to be heard
    l must hear you at your first and last word...
    so speak.. boundlessly
    cry
    ask me why of your past-
    present and even your future...
    but please allow me to kiss the tears from your eyes
    until they become a river a peace...
    and then, again
    whatever troubles you will cease...

    the way l comfort you

    To be truly heard, nonjudgmental, just wanting to know all from a to z and ease the pain away. This was so endearing, sweetly laid poet.

    Consistency…
    You’ve always shown me
    By being there whenever I was lonely
    Needing someone ….
    You carefully bandaged the scars that were hidden
    …always you
    the unique one with a disposition
    for compassion and empathy
    your ability
    to love so unselfishly
    makes you so beautiful
    so as…my strength increases
    and your smiles & serenity stand proudly
    I never forget you
    That friend, confidant and incomparable spirit
    God given…
    Is your virtue in being able…

    To comfort me…the way you do




    ...it's infinite
    Sage
