Good to remember a truth of life

We need caretaking feeling strife

Someone there salving the ills

When cold warming chills


No matter how far fast rich

Sentient life’s not always a stitch

Look for balance peace serenity

While being centered and free


Search for warm you can call home

Nurturing and caressing your moan

Quiets yearning fills what’s missing

Provides solace and face kissing


As you go forward growing up

Notice you get filling their cup

Place we long for warm glow within

Comes from giving wearing a grin


Do you feel part of a caretaking circle?

Who do you give comfort to and who do you get comfort from?

Is the exchange satisfying?
