Standing

I stood quietly
Watching in the distance
You stood attentively
Gathered up in the one
Who stood before you
Kindness was lifted
Upon the cheek 
Of your smile
As you gave yourself
To one in a stir 
Calmness was carried
By your soft words
And I found myself
In this world
Feeling lighter
If only for the time
That I stood
And watched
