Without Words

When you sit
In silence
Next to someone
Who is grieving
You are saying
        You
        Are not
        Alone

When you resist
The urge
To sanitize
Another person’s
Mess
You are saying
       I will
       Follow
       Your lead

When you
Don't utter
Simple solutions
To complicated problems
You are saying
       This is dark
       I'm scared
       But I’ll stay

When you listen
As she decides
How to move forward
After trauma
You are saying
      I trust
      That you
      Know best

You’re not alone
I will follow
I will stay
You know best

All this
And more said
Without words
