exchange

550tea

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

p.s.  have you visited stay with yourself yet?  it’s a lovely space of collected stories.  the world is full of stories that need to be told, and i’m wondering if you have a story you’d like to share.  if so, check the submissions tab.  and if you’d like to read a story i shared, click here.
