A Word Of Advice - Poem by Noemi Lee

What do you say?
What do you say
to someone who is
inconsolable?

What do you say
to someone
who has lost
the most important
person
place
thing
in their life?

'I know how you feel'

No, you don't know how they feel.

'Time heals all'

No, it doesnt heal all.

What do you say?
What do you say
to someone who is aching?

Nothing.

You say nothing

You
silently
extend:
your hand
your ear
your heart.

You say nothing.
Let them speak.
