Oh the comfort,
The inexpressible comfort
Of feeling safe with a person
Having neither to weigh our thoughts,
Nor words,
But pouring them all right out, just as they are
Chaff and grain together
Certain that a faithful hand
Will take them and sift them
Keeping what is worth keeping and
With the breath of kindness,
Blow the rest away
– Dinah Craik
