A Soda and Two Cups

Love you Brother!!!

By Rick HenryPublished 6 months ago 1 min read

Comfort for me is…

Grabbing an extra cup and sharing my soda with my brother

It's driving a little further than expected to visit my sister

It's giving up my seat for the comfort of my mother

It's getting on my knees to tie the shoes of my father

Comfort to me is…

Giving what I can to the one that has no food

It's giving patience to the one that is being rude

It's clothing the one that is sitting in the nude

It's encouraging the one with the sunken mood

Comfort for me is…

Walking in the sun eating ice cream in the park

It's seeing graceful colors on the rainbow's arc

It's making things bright with a smile and a spark

It's knowing that I'm happy as the sky grows dark

Comfort for me is just knowing that "I am"

    A perfect companion piece to your random 1979 albums piece; glad I read this right after that one, & big hugs to you.

  • I loved this so much! Like Linda mentioned below, comfort is finding happiness in the smallest of things. Nothing extravagant or materialistic. Very beautifully written!

    A truly beautiful poem that covers so much of what really matters in life. It shows that you know how to find joy in life's simple pleasures like a rainbow, a cone of ice cream, helping others who are down, and the love of family and friends. I hearted it.
