Kimo Therapy


I see you filled with emotional pain
You feel like you are alone
So I will hold your hand

It’s okay, you do not need to explain
I will be here through the hurt
Let me absorb your tears

When you are ready tell me how you feel
My promise is to listen
You are safe here with me.


For Carol Connell’s Kimo Therapy Contest
Written August 5th 2018

Congrats on hosting your first contest Carol. Also thanks for the example.

Congratulations on your win. Words of compassion needed to be said and needed to be heard by most everyone at different times in our lives. Sadly, not everyone knows how or when to say them. I like this.

Richard, congratulations on your win in my first contest with this fine entry. Sometimes just being there can speak volumes, more than words we could say. Being the friend that one can confide in when they are ready is important too. I appreciate what you shared here!

An excellent write as always Richard. I enjoyed the read, it made me think. It is strange that when i feel alone and friendless someone always seems to be there. Your words always have a meaning. This little gem makes the loneliness fly. This gem goes into my faves. Keep singing your golden songs Richard. Have a wonderful Friday. Your friend always....Mike.

Off on a 12 hour journey that will take me to Hungary with the family. Just wanted you to know... I'll try to catch up from over there. Pray for travelling mercies as I'm still not 100 percent. Hope to read something new from you soon. Hugs

If I remember correctly, Richard, a major tenet of the book 'how to win friends and influence people' was above all to be a good listener. Lord knows why we need a book to tell us that.... Fine write, good luck in the contest. Regards, Viv

The greatest gift is safety. Too often we can't reveal our true selves for fear of judgement or rejection. Lovely write...

So true, we are afraid that if others see us how we see ourselves that they would cease to love us. That would be unbearable so we bear our pain in silence.

Nicely penned, Richard. Best wishes for the contest. T.J

Sometimes we much choose our friends wisely, for many have such compassion, as I have met Richard, I can say he is a man filled with such warmth of heart, I wish all to have a friend such as him!

I wish for you the friend but not the heartache. But if the heartache comes I hope his fantasy will be your reality. Thanks for the visit Becca.
