man with the quiet eyes

thank you

for daring to listen

when, wringing hands and eyes in despair,

I choked out truth

and knew your simple hand on the shoulder was a full

deep gesture,

coupled with your words of hope, poured-out love from trust

a single moment never to be repeated –

thank you anyways.
