Feelings

I feel seen.

The way you know exactly what to say 

Precisely when you need to.

All of the right words

Comforting me like a warm hug.


I feel heard.

The way you listen with intent

To every word I say

As if it is the best story you have ever heard

Making me feel understood.


I feel supported.

The way you take interest

In all of those little things I tell you about 

That are important to me

That are now also important to you.


I feel safe.

The way you reassure me that I am not a burden 

Even on the worst mental health days 

When I want to self destruct 

You take away the that doubt.


You make me feel

Seen 

Heard 

Supported 

Safe.

How do I make you feel?
