Love Letter 5

Rest your head down and I will run my hands through your soft hair.  Just close your eyes and turn down the volume on all your anxious thoughts.  I am right besides you and I won’t abandon you.  I won’t hurt you, dear.  Let your worries float away on streams created by a steady, gentle rain of affection.

Rest in peace, let nothing disturb your inner core.  You are the same and changing.  You won’t fail or be defeated.  You will endure.  There will be a tomorrow.  And you can be passionate and fierce, but also content and filled with faith.  Hold on to hope.  Your lovely eyes shouldn’t always swim with tears.  Your laughter shouldn’t be muted.  Your smile is beautiful to see-will you show it to me?  Let me embrace you and breathe in the same space.  Let me hold your hand and that action will tell you that I am beside you and for you, in this very moment.

In the coming days, I won’t forget.  I won’t regret loving you.  I am committed to you.  Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  From now on, we are together.  So, don’t despair.  I am here with you in your grief.  I won’t leave you alone in your suffering.  I love you.

Love Letter 4

Tender-hearted.  Compassionate.  Sensitive.  Present.  Heart-felt.

Eye See You by tida bradshaw

Empathetic rather than sympathetic.  Close rather than distant.  Connected rather than unengaged.  Even your ability to hurt with and for another is a beautiful gift when it causes compassion and comfort to follow.
