if i speak my words
will you listen?
if i extend them to you
will you gingerly tuck them into your heart
for safe keeping?

because one day
i may need you to pull them out
and speak them back to me

and i will listen
and i will tuck them tenderly then
and we will know
that each has been heard


sending a little love your way, m
