Comfort
Photo by Pavan Trikutam on Unsplash

Comfort is a cozy blanket

Wrapped tightly near the fire

Comfort is a safe, warm place

A bed to which retire

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a rich sweet scent

Wafting from the oven

Comfort is a stable place

A home that there is love in

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a fridge packed tight

With nourishing food to eat

Comfort is a well-stocked freezer

Filled with pleasant treats

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a household pantry

Brimming with rice and beans

Comfort is a state of fullness

Worriless of what or when you'll eat

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a garden bounty

Nourished from the ground

Comfort is the tweet of birds

Awake to pleasant sounds

----------------------------------------

Comfort is the air so sweet

A crisp, cool, cleansing breeze

Comfort is the changing colors

An admiration of every leaf

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a state of mind

Quiet and content

Comfort is a cheer all its own

Reminiscent of times once spent

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a rich warm sound

Of chuckling and of laughter

Comfort is a patient state

Awaiting what you're after

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a confidence

Exuding inner peace

Comfort is a wisdom knowing

Providing sweet relief

----------------------------------------

Comfort is of conscious blessing

Expressing gratitude

Comfort is a treasured memory

Uplifting to your mood

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a loved one's hug

A snuggled place to be

Comfort is a joy shared

A smile from you to me

----------------------------------------

Comfort is togetherness

Or an occasional solitude

Times spent surrounded

Or left alone to sooth

----------------------------------------

Comfort can be different

Or for some of us the same

Comfort can be tangible

Or that which we cannot name

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a cup of coffee

Or for others tea

Comfort is toes in sand

Or peering into the sea

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a candle lit

Gleaming in the darkness

Comfort is a favorite book

That our imaginations harness

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a cushioned chair

On which our bottoms rest

Comfort is perseverance

Accepting of our best

----------------------------------------

Comfort is your child's presence

Knowing where they are

Comfort is found in raising them

And accepting them for who they are

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a family

One that is healthy and whole

Comfort is a meaningful thing

Not something merely for show

----------------------------------------

Comfort is emotional

Shedding joyous tears when blessed

Comfort is a healing touch

A sweet and tender caress

----------------------------------------

Comfort is beyond our needs

Passed our wants and desires

Comfort is a resting place

One that love and care inspires

----------------------------------------

Comfort is a promise kept

A confidence in word

Comfort is a vow held sacred

That in action is endured

----------------------------------------

Comfort is not complacent

But is steadfast in loyalty

Comfort is a form of rest or action

A place of significance to be

----------------------------------------

Comfort is what you make of it

What it means to you

Comfort is knowing you've evolved

And smiling at your breakthrough

----------------------------------------

Comfort is not just the trees that grow

But the awareness that you do too

Comfort is looking back and viewing

Making them noteworthy to you

----------------------------------------
