HOW WAS YOUR DAY?
It’s amazing what you miss?
Perspective is a delightful thing.
I never played the sounding board.
Never too much for gripe sessions.
Never put too much time into listening.
Today a friend vented. And I listened.
Intentionally, uninterrupted, definitely partial
but adequately objective.
I do hope I was a help, sincerely.
See we are fairly newly acquainted.
My ink isn’t dry yet on my formerly
Maybe the glue that I hope seals me to a new love
Is created in times like these
Conversations like these.
Bad days, long drives, understanding,
Overlooking the stress to find a way to unburden oneself
By engaging the partner in a debriefing on one’s tribulations.
I definitely understand, formerly not too willing.
