Patient silence

The cause of sadness also shows its end;

That we let go the loved one and remain.

Such comfort,aid and love we have from friends

Helps us bear the heart’s most dangerous pain.

But if our friends fear their own hidden grief.

If sorrow is never let to touch their heart;

Then friendship’s stolen by a nervous thief;

As wishing to retain our self,we part.

The friends who sit in silent company

Who look for no reward yet love us true

Who show, quite clear, desireless empathy;

They are friends who warmth and hope imbue.

Patient silence may do more than words

The utterance of the heart is not absurd.
