Oh, the comfort-the inexpressable of feeling safe with a person,

Having neither to weigh thoughts,
No measure words-but pouring them
All right out-just as they are-
Chaff and grain together-
Certain that a faithful hand will
Take and sift them-
Keep what is worth keeping-
And with the breath of kindness
Blow the rest away.

-Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
