Touch and Sensitivity

79 out of 97
(v) to soothe someone in pain. Origin: a con-, together + dolere, to feel pain ? 'to be together with someone in his pain.' The poem is about a fresh widower. His friends condole him in his grief and promise to be there for him whenever he needs them. Soon, however, they become busy with their own lives. He is left alone with his pain. Only pain seems to lie ahead now. Life doesn't seem to have any purpose. He loses his will to work because he thinks there is nobody he needs to work for. He just weeps and sleeps through his days and nights. One day, however, he does realize that not doing any work is no solution for his pain. In fact, working will help divert his mind. So, he reports to work again.
