Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

03 April 2014



she always smiles,

always sees the brightest,

even in the darkest,

she always listens,

responds with hugs

and just the right words,

always offers assistance

in climbing out of the pit,

always knows how

to let you cry

just long enough

before she lifts you

out of the holes,

she’s always there

when you need someone

to walk beside you

in silence,

and, more often than not,

she never asks

for anything in return.

It’s taken me a lifetime

to understand,

to see,

even the encourager

needs to be encouraged

I pray it’s not too late

to learn to be

more like her.
