Truly Needed - Part One



Is it true that besides love
The only thing that makes one happy
Is to be truly needed?
Not merely accepted
Not merely given responsibility
Nor just given a respectable role to play
But truly needed.
To know that your very presence is valued
Your words are as silver
Your heart that you share is golden
And your very essence is. . .
Is a value too high to even dream.
Have we. . .
Have we in our civilized growth
Outgrown the simplest
Most valued parts of our lives?
That of personal touch
