April PAD Day 22-Simple, Sweet

Her laugh made him smile

simple, sweet

he drank in the moments

when they didn’t really talk

only a few words, they strum

at his mouth, she knew

how to make the day stretch

within a smile, she was his medicine

simple, sweet

pulling away the layers of stress, the conversations

sentences weighing upon his shoulders

and the world clamoring in his ears

they could sit together

with a conversation of a few words and gestures

and he felt alive again
