I read this short story during the late 1980s to early 1990s in an English language collection.
An alien space ship is crashing to earth, with its crew terrified of their impending death. Their only cargo, an alien creature, senses their terror and does what it can to ease their suffering telepathically.
The creature survives the crash, and is found by a blind girl - the creature gives the girl the ability to see for the first time ever, and demonstrates further abilities to the girls friends.
The story ends when the creature falls down a mine shaft, possibly while helping the girl and her friends save someone. The girl can sense the creature falling and then its death. The creature may have been deliberately knocked off the girls shoulder by a bully who is jealous of the girl now she has the creature.
