close eyes

close eyes

Sunrise
when people are
pained, sad, or anxious
with life
it helps to ask them
to close their eyes
* * *
it helps more than
asking what’s wrong
more than
touching their skin
more than
listening to or telling
stories

* * *
when people are
pained, sad, or anxious
with life
it helps to ask them
to close their eyes
* * *
it helps more
than giving advice
more than
antidotes
more than
medication

* * *
when people are
pained, sad, or anxious
with life
it helps to ask them
to close their eyes
*
sometimes they just
need reminding
that they know
their own song

that the sun
is theirs too
and that no one
can take it away

Sunset
