When thank you isn’t enough

Sometimes someone says or does something that leaves me speechless. Because I don’t know what to say and because I’m not sure I can say it without crying.

Sometimes the words
Thank you
Just don’t seem like they are enough.
Sometimes no words
can possibly
be enough.
And even if you could think of the right words,
You wouldn’t be able to get them past
the lump in your throat.
So you try to say something,
While you blink back the tears.
And you hope that someday
You will have the chance
to be this kind,
And that you will do it
Because you want to,
And you will be gracious enough
to understand
That an unspoken thank you
can be enough.
