You sit alone.
There is no sound to hear, no voice to speak of.
You look for another to comfort, to care.
Nobody steps into your lonely vision.
But wait, there, in the distance
There are others moving towards you,
Stretching out their hands,
Opening their arms to hold you.
There is a community of souls who understand,
A world where people stand alongside you.
You cannot see them, you cannot hear,
But oh how you feel their warmth.
You are surrounded by love,
By acceptance; a force-field of support.
You are strong on your own.
You are stronger together.
