Name of Song: The Listener

The art of listening,
Just listen well to what they have to say.
Interested,
Touch their very soul in calming ways.

Get comfortable,
Make them feel like no one else is there.
Don’t disagree,
Accepting what they say and understand.

Chorus
A kindness wrapped in interest,
Their calm for listening well,
The magic of the listener,
A way to break those spells.

They try to be themselves,
In a world that’s not that way,
They have no urge to wear some mask,
Focused just on what you say.

They should all be protected,
Their value oh so rare,
They’re interested in what you have to say,
Surround them with your prayer.

Chorus
A kindness wrapped in interest,
Their calm for listening well,
The magic of the listener,
A way to break those spells.

______

Next time you meet a listener,
Just tell them what you want,
And trust that they will hear you out,
They are the new savants.

Chorus
A kindness wrapped in interest,
Their calm for listening well,
The magic of the listener,
A way to break those spells.
