Touch





I was reading a blog about a person who was violently ill on a plane. The woman next to her, a complete stranger could not speak her language but offered her coat, and stroked her arm through the flight…Shhhhh she would day Shhhhh as if she were a child. I was really in awe over this. Most would people would want another seat. Here is her link she allowed me to post.
So I started writing..

There are no words


To heal my wounds


I cannot hear you


The hidden places that do not show


Bruised and blistered

Blind my ears


But you know
You understand, you’ve been there before


And you cover me with your coat of compassion
Protecting the fragility of my soul


Stroke my hair
With the hands of affection


As my emotions cripple my insides
Wrap me in your arms of comfort


Like a mother to its child
Shhhhhhhhhh


And you let me rest for awhile
As I find my way back


To unbroken.
