'Obscured View'

When it looks like the fire inside were doused Do you pretend not to notice? Do you try and lit it up again? Will you walk away without a second thought? Knowing that when you saw her “that day” She had a smile that said I am me Comfortable Receptive In my own skin Do you probe for the reason behind the death stare? When all she needed was to know you care That you noticed her smile has disappeared That the shadow of troubles was floating in the air She just needed you to listen Perhaps hold her hand Not to judge her When she felt a little bruised In all this she might need a hug Will you be there? Will you turn your back? Will you walk away? With the pretense that everything is still okay

    Too often we pretend not to notice. I feel the sadness behind the beautifully expressed verse. Excellent write, Wilma. T.J

    Most people ( read men) will turn and wall away pretending everything is OK. That is until they come home in the evening. A 7

    Often all we need is acceptance, a hand to hold, and an unconditional love, that says, I will love you through it all, that is rare, when you find such a heart, you hang on to it, sending you my hugs, and a healing thought, you are dear to me Wilma, love and hugs, always, Vie xxx ps. have a look at this it will make you think x

    Nicely expressed, Wilma. When you truly love someone your vision is not obscured by anything.
