Soul connection

She never seemed to waste anytime
Although she never tried
She had a way of reaching right in and grabbing what's on your mind
She found herself the keeper of secrets and the giver of advice
She was refreshingly honest, raw and kind
She is a familiar connection life throws your way at exactly the right time
Another soul that recognizes the pain behind your eyes
She insists she will help with the weight of your life
If you do the same for another weary soul down the line
She says it will make it back to me when I need help with mine
Just a brief encounter helps restore a stranger's faith in mankind
She allowed him the to let go of a heaviness he held inside
She always tried to take more weight with her than she leaves behind.
