'Ramblings to a Friend'

I wanted to hug you tonight even though it would not ease your pain I wanted to say it would be okay even though your eyes had lost their shine I wanted to be the ear that you needed when your hurt and pain flowed from your lips I wanted to be all that and more so much more I wanted to say that I love you today even more than I did yesterday just to say that it felt good that you trust me enough to share it all even though you felt the need to say sorry for being sad, sorry for sharing your pain, I want you to know that sorry has no place in this space

    Words from a true friend, Wilma. You are a good listener and always offer comfort to others. I often find myself apologizing for "unloading" on friends, but that's not what they want to hear. Excellent poem! Love, Carolyn

    Right on Wilma. This is a very nurturing and caring poem, highlighting positive qualities. Hmmm, why do I write so many poems that purposefully highlight my weaker and more negative qualities? Therapy? Weird.
