…what do you say?
When “I wish I could take your hurt away” is inadequate?
When “you’ll be fine” rings hollow?
When silence doesn’t feel like an answer?
I don’t know how to fix things.
I can not undo what happened.
I can promise that the only thing that has changed between us is that, I care more for you because you are taking more of my emotional energy…
…and that is a gift freely given…
I do know that you have been told you are beautiful but, I don’t know if they were talking about what I am, your heart and soul. There is no part of you that is, to me, damaged. You were and always will be beautiful.
This is my hand. Take it for as long as you need.
