Stay Connected—Poem

Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

To someone near or far,

After a long time,

A simple phone call,

A simple text message,

For no specific reason,

To know their welfare,

Greetings, and good wishes,

To uplift and reassure,

To exchange pleasantries,

Sometimes, it’s important

To listen, to be there,

To be the healing touch,

The magic of staying connected,

The medicine fails,

The person heals.
