Be – A Poem

when your loved one is
unwell, or struggling
whether physically
or emotionally
you want to do
anything and everything
to help them feel better

but sometimes we find
there’s nothing much
we can do
other than simply
with them
for being is
more intimate
more profound
than doing

perhaps what they need
more than ever
is for us to
there for them
with complete attention
with full presence
not to mention
kisses and cuddles
