When someone deeply listens to you

When someone deeply listens to you
It is like holding out a dented cup
you’ve had since childhood
and watching it fill up with cold, fresh water.
When it balances on top of the brim,
You are understood.
When it overflows and touches your skin,
You are loved.

When someone deeply listens to you
The room where you stay
Starts a new life
And the place where you wrote Your first poem
Begins to glow in your mind’s eye
It is as if gold has been discovered!

When someone deeply listens to you
Your bare feet are on the earth
And a beloved land that seemed distant
Is now at home within you.

- John Fox
