(As a friend)

A firelight flickers somewhere in the night.

A candle is glowing, giving off light.

A fingertip placed with appropriate care,

twisting a curl, while ruffling hair.

A hand is found reaching, touching a soul,

soothing a scar that was born long ago.

A palm is caressing, framing a face;

an arm is encircling in warming embrace.

A friend, or a lover, I cannot explain;

a listener, a heart light, a taker of pain.

No questions, no reasons,

are asked when you care,

the answer is found in just being there.
