Oh, the comfort -- 
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,
Having neither to weigh thoughts,
 Nor 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.

By Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
