Talk to Me

Talk to Me

A Poem by Ashley

So how was your day?
Did you see the sun come up?
have a cup of coffee
yawn
stretch 
make it to your destination okay?
Did you tell someone you loved them?
smile
laugh
grieve
Did you pet a dog?
compliment a stranger
help a person in need?
Did you stop and smell the flowers?
let the wind blow through your hair
listen to the rain tap on your windows?
look up at the sky
breath in the fresh air?
Did you put your phone down?
make eye contact
hear the thunder
did you feel it as it shook your core?
Have you eaten?
Did you cook?
How are you feeling?
What is that look?
You seem so far away
Do you want to sit in silence?
Did you put down what was heavy,
what happened yesterday?
Can I get you something?
hold your hand
scratch you back?
How can I help keep you calm through this,
how can I help you relax?
I just want to sit here.
I want to listen as you speak.
What is it that you dream of?
What is it that makes you feel weak?
Do you feel safe?
appreciated
valued in your space?
Where did that little grin come from?
Who put that smile on your face?
I hope I bring you comfort,
love
warmth
joy
and peace.
I want nothing more than you sitting here, 
just sitting here
with me.

Omg
This is brilliant
Love the questions
Love the unanswered
Love the way you ended the poem like an open invitation to someone special in your life or even to a random stranger in these bad times
Well done
