Reach out

Tenderness.jpg

When you reach out a hand to me

You touch my heart

With this simple act of kindness

You show me I am not longer set apart

And this feeling of connection

Says a million times more

Than just words could say

For gosh it hurts

When others look away

From our suffering

But when they turn towards us instead

A loving, tender gaze

Then we know we are not broken

Just hurting

We are not needy

Just needing of care

We know we are not

Forsaken

But loved

Embraced

Understood

Valued

And deeply cherished
