We couldn’t communicate with words, But by actions I learned what words couldn’t say— “Try this!” “Try that. “This is for you to remember us by.” You showed me that hospitality grows from generosity, A loving heart and willing hands is all that is necessary. A wide smile connects heart to heart. A small gift bonded you and me.
I always thought conversations form the bedrock of friendships, A commons language is the key to know and get to know. But now I know that I was wrong. Hospitality requires no language, Just an open heart to give, A brave soul to try and A readiness to go.
If you don’t get better you can’t go out to play If you don’t get better the mask will be your lonely fate If you don’t get better our family will be in danger The plans we’ve made will have to change …… If you don’t get better I will make you chicken soup; I will search high and low for cough drops and medicine too I will brew your favorite herbal tea, Or simply filter water if that’s what you need If you don’t get better we will fight together. We will stay by your side We will keep awake and our eyes wide. If you don’t get better we will not give up we will wait for you and with you and never stop. If you don’t get better that’s okay.
