Listen


What does it mean to be heard?
To have someone listen
Hang on each word?
Look in our eyes
See deep in our heart
Breathe in the wisdom we'd hoped to impart
Know our thought's value
Our contribution's worth
Validate true fulfillment on earth
For all of humanity
Affirms a common theme
Survival through hope and the freedom to dream
For what is a life
Without someone to share?
Relationship our purpose, to love and to care
There is no greater gift
Than to listen to understand
To lend a loving ear, offer our heart's helping hand
When our self-worth's empty
Those who care can't be found
Please listen to someone, every word, every sound
What does it mean to be heard?
To Have someone listen
Hang on each word?
Listen
It means everything
