An Audible Breath

I heard you breathe,
It could have been a sigh,
It could have been a heave,
It could have been a release,
I just could not leave.

Whatever it may be,
Tell me your troubles.
Whatever it could be,
Tell me your dreams.
Perhaps, a joke is the key.

Do you reminisce,
Or try to forget?
Do you get the gist?
Nothing’s a threat.
How ‘bout a hug, a kiss?

A smile, keep near,
To your heart, dear friend,
Understand without fear,
And for a short while,
Even shed a tear.
