Five For Five / Six Word Fridays: Listening

Maybe in the thickness of heavy grief
words are overrated and overused anyway.

Maybe all of which aches, pulses
Maybe all of which burns, stings
more needs open arms, open ears.

That I would offer strong embrace,
whisper, oh, friend, I hear you*.

*If I can hear your heart today, friends, won't you send word? I don't have perfect responses, but I can offer prayers and love.
