.i am listening

Standard

I am listening to you…
with intent to learn, to grow and to give
I am listening to you…
to your words unspoken
that seep through your bones
I am listening to you…
trying to grasp your language…. your needs and your wants

I am listening to you…
even when you think I am not
I am listening with my eyes as I watch the way you move
I am laughing at your jokes but I see the underlying truths…
I am listening to you in ways you wont understand
but I listen with an open heart as I grasp your hand….

I am listening to you even when I don’t comprehend
the world through your eyes… very different from my own
but, alas, a world that I long to know

I am listening….

    Love is understanding and we can’t understand unless we listen. Even when we are talking.
    I have asked myself if I really listen to understand or just to say I listened. Sometimes I forget how good it feels to be listened to. It is love. Thanks for sharing again Ms Fox! Namaste
