She came to my house and picked me up-
never saying a word
I asked her time and time again-
to say at least one word
I didn't know what was wrong with her-
she had that unreadable look
but as that tear rolled down her cheek-
in my hand her hand I took
I said that I was here for her-
as she pulled to the side of the road
What she said as she looked at me-
hit me like a load
She said that she was crying because-
I had left her side
she felt as if in me-
she could not confide
I asked her what she meant by this-
asked what I had done
She looked at me-
straight in the eye
Then she looked away-
told me I could not see her cry
I told her I did not understand all this-
at that she took away her hand
she told me then what was wrong-
her oyster had not found it's grain of sand
At that comment I understood-
she had been waiting for me to see
That the one she loved left her brokenhearted-
and by not seeing this I too had left her brokenhearted

A powerful message, and so true. Wonderful!

Thank you very much.I sometimes don't realize that my friends are in pain because I too have problems to deal with, but I try very hard to keep up with their lives and mine.
