Oh the Comfort

 
 
 
Oh the comfort,
the inexpressible comfort,
of feeling safe
with a person,
having neither to weigh
thoughts
nor measure words,
but to pour them all out
just as they are,
chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand
will take and sift them, keep what
is worth keeping,
and then,
with the breath of kindness,
blow
the rest
away.

- George Eliot
