Deep down inside it should be known,

it’s never good to moan alone.

We need someone to listen to

all the trauma we’ve been through.


With our instincts we can tell,

if someone thinks to listen well.

They try to look us in the eye

and they never, ever sigh.


Everything they say and do

seems to support our point of view.

Their empathy is so precise,

it makes us take all their advice.


As we listen to what they say,

they help to keep our fears at bay.

They seem to stand right close to us

and give their most without a fuss.


They radiate an ambience,

that indicates experience.

There’s few things better than someone,

who’s done some things that you have done.


We feel we’ve found someone at last,

who has been down in their own past.

It feels the deal if they’ve been there,

for then we feel they really care.


Then within our conversation,

we release all our frustration.

We get to let the venom out,

when someone knows what it’s about.


There is so much that it provides

to have such people by our sides.

It helps when you would like a moan

to know that you are not alone.
