A Listening Ear

posted on January 22, 2018

[109 words]

When a heart is troubled
And the pain too much to bear
A listening ear is needed.
Do you have an ear to spare?

Tears flow freely down the face
When no one seems to care.
Your listening is needed,
Will your ear be there?

When troubled words pour out,
The pain is less to bear,
And hurting hearts are eased.
A listening ear will care.

Gloomy thoughts come often
If no one’s there to share.
Do take the time to go,
Your ear will show you care.

Your presence there is needed
Not words, just nod your head.
Be someone there to listen,
Just lend your ear instead.
