Currency for Kindness

You held me that day, wrapped me in your cocoon,
Waited patiently for me to grow my wings back.
You let me cry a salty puddle on your shirt,
Resting your puzzle-piece chin on my puzzle-piece head,
Rubbing my back in little circles that recharged me.
There is no currency for kindness, my friend,
But I owe you more than you can know.

    Makes you think about the true meaning we have to each other when we are at our best. There is no currency that can take the place of real caring
