These three are perfection. You state so much, so eloquently, in so few words and lines. I admire your ease with haiku, a form I find very challenging. Great response to the prompt!
those are well penned micro poetry ... enjoyed reading.

I hear you! Yes, I do!
If one day you feel like crying,Call me. I don’t promise that I will make you laugh, But I can cry with you. If one day you want to run away,Don’t be afraid to call me. I don’t promise to ask you to stop, But I can run with you.
Nice, Uma :)
