Believe The Power

I believe the power of touch

Comes not just from a gentle caress

Or shielding and protective hug.

But from the gentle word spoken for a hurting heart,

A kind smile shared tenderly with a troubled soul,

A soft and deep sigh of contentment shared with love,

A pause in life to listen to another’s troubles or pains,

A quiet commitment of action to someone’s need,

A direct look into another’s eye with a nod,

A whispered breath exhaling the power of an emotion just shared.

I believe in these powers.

    I can easily see that you must have such a gentle hand that comforts others with your words and your actions. What a value you bring to those you love in your home and family, but also in the workplace. This is lovely, Colleen.
