I’m Listening

If you have something you’d like to say,
because you want to
or after you’ve prayed,
I’m listening.

If you have tales and poems and stories
of adventures and forests
or journey’s riches and glories,
I’m listening.

If you are despondent or morose,
because of heartbreak
and too little hope,
I’m listening.

If there’s a future you’ve imagined,
describe it to me
for its advancement;
I’m listening.

In case there’s something quite pressing
where we could both be swept away;
in case we might build an enchantment
where we spend our days
beneath piles of books and confessing,
seeking truth and poetry;
and in case you simply need
an ear to hear, indeed,
I’m listening.
