Silent encounter

A few years ago I was still  feeling very sad.The doorbell rang.It was a neighbour whose husband had died
She came in and stood by the fire  and I sat down
She didn’t speak, just cried
I didn’t know what to do.I started to cry
We both cried for about 20 minutes
She then said, thank you and left
I never spoke

    1. Yes,sometimes we can feel awkward and be afraid of saying the wrong thing.i know Jewish people sit Shivah for a week.They are looked after and have to just sit and cry.I wish we had that.People asked me why not see a counsellor.I said it’s only 8 days ince he died.That’s ridiculous.Thanks for your thought,Syd
