What an honor it is to care for another
To take care the concerns of a sister or brother
To hear their voices and anticipate needs
To fulfill their desires and offer sweet deeds
Receiving them fully no matter their wound
Allowing their humanity feeding nourishing food
Offering your whole self to cherish and love
Providing your kindness being their dove
Some people do this with ease and grace
Some do it over as they move place to place
Others resist live in their own skin
They cannot let go of concerns within
If you can release get big embrace
The needs of another give you a new face
No longer focused on your inner map
Your feet will tingle have a bounce even tap
When you look around do you get a sense
You can provide gifts like nobody else
You fill in what’s missing seek to give not to take
You see the sweet apples and you have to bake
Take the ingredients in front of you
Your sacred recipes can create a new roux
When ready to leave let others observe
You came to care to give and to serve
Do you spend much time scanning your environment looking for what others need?
When was the last time you did?
Have you experienced the gifts you get when you care for the concerns of others?
What is your resistance?
