El (L)

Although I don’t know what,
I feel something must be said
So I say many different things.
And you watch me while I speak.
I do not know what your look means,
because I am too afraid to meet it.
I let my eyes wander with my mind.
And my words meander, seemingly pointless.
But are they pointless, really?
I don’t believe they are.
And I have to trust you don’t either.
Else you wouldn’t offer to listen.
So on and on I continue to chatter.
Stopping every now and again
to listen to your comments and input.
Even when it’s not what I want to hear.
I value your words. Your thoughts.
Your wisdom.
The gentleness of your hugs,
the kindness of your smile
and the ease of your laugh
have seen me through difficult times.
And although I don’t know what,
I feel something must be said.
So, I say thank you for your gratitude.
I say thank you for your nurturing hand.
I say thank you for your honesty & your trust.
And I say thank you for all of this and more.
Although I don’t know what,
I feel something has now been said.
