Message found

In the quiet moments
that reside in-between moments
and thoughts that balance the mood
I find you waiting.
Messages found in the acts of kindness
come washing through like soothing rain,
cooling the fire of insecurity
or the edge of waiting on sidelines
never hearing your name called,
passing the time I had forgotten
in the reaching out
beyond the waves where emptiness lay
there was found a gift
of endless words that lifted higher
to where air could be found
and life preserved in a state
of knowing,
floating along on the bliss of peace
and the hand that trembles
stronger for the hand that took it firmly,
leading it to the shore,
reminders and memories of what it was,
that all important thing called kindness
and the tears that rise
held back by the dam of senses,
never here for fear
as their eyes that glare in condemnation
in the high tower of their hearts,
stare perhaps sadder
for not having that perfect moment
on that sudden connection of souls,
the smile created worth being open
and spilling the waters
of humanity and need realized
as a stranger becomes a friend
if only for a moment.
