To Be Heard Poem by D Loveday Morris

To Be Heard

Rating: 5.0


To Be Heard

Everyone likes to be heard
Especially those whose minds are blurred
The ones with mental disabilities
When you listen it can help guide them to reality

For those with degenerative diseases like dementia
Listening with eyes, heart and ears is a kind gesture
For what better thing to do than listen
And see how their eyes glisten

It helps to be heard in times of grief
To provide healing and relief
Other times it gives peace of mind
And communicates what is kind

Even those who may seem quiet
May not be on a word diet
But may have learnt too soon
Only in silence can happiness bloom

Everyone likes to be heard
Listen and not say a word
And they might share
The pain and fear that they bear

When you listen you will be blessed
You'll leave better- never less
So today as you go about
Be ready to hear someone out
