Just sit with me

Eyes downcast

I sit by life’s well

Contemplating the ruins

All the plans gone astray

Feeling helpless

Tense mind and fidgety fingers

Unable to stop the train of punishing thoughts

Clicking steps close in

She comes, sits by me

Side by side

Comes closer still

Suddenly the weight on my shoulder lifts

Her dainty hand pats my knee

Hand in hand   in silence we sit

Not a word is said

Hugging hands say

I know, you know

I know you know

‘When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark.’
