Mutual Care – Written Monday 17th August 2020 (Aged 45)

Mutual Care

we have found a connection
a confort,
that has come –
from a shared situation
i sit there
and i look at her
her eyes have aged well
in how many workplaces
do we need these kindly faces
i saw the sun fill up her face
and we talked again
of the true madness in our workplace
we pack those troubles
in a familiar case
and we share stories
i know,
emotions do not have to be shared
but we find a connection
and we take comfort in our mutual care
