Heart Whisperer

by Kerowyn Rose

Your voice is a balm.
The words you say
are not as important

as the soothing
sound projected

from your
chest cavity to calm

the nitpick pin pricks,
the pet peeve pock marks
and Chinese water torture

of what sets
the nerves on edge.

It has a unique quality
to lower blood pressure;

reducing ego insults
to mere child’s play.

It eases irritations;
reminding one of what

really is important in life.

Without hesitation you
take the side of the one
who needs comforting.

Which is why,
when all else fails,

the sound of your voice
puts it all back in place;

makes everything right again.
