The Key


A look ,a touch , a cup of tea ,

I wish I knew what was the key

to  relax ,renew and  let things   be

Just lay back and roll the dice

Trust that the journey would suffice

Be it through fire or through ice

I wish I knew what to do ,

to ease those furrows on  your brow ,

and snub resentment ; lest it grow .

Should  I listen  or should I  speak

how do I offer the comfort I seek
