100 Words: On Bad News

Two of my friends
received bad news:
a death
and a troubling diagnosis.


And everything I want
to say
to comfort them
sounds so overused.


In my search
for the message I want to convey,

I remember my own bad news
and
how I felt to receive it.
I run my fingers over scars,
saying kind words to soothe them
and sigh with relief
that I survived those bad times.


I realize then what I really want to say:

I AM HERE FOR YOU
if you need me.
