Dear you who needs this tonight–
I know it’s hard.
It’s always and not always hard.
I see you.
It’s worth it.
The rest of our stories don’t want to go on without you.
Forget the excuses and forgive your mistakes.
There’s not enough time and we are too small and godlike to be petty.
All you need ever be is light–and when you can only manage to recognize the dark know that we are here.
Waiting for you.
Reaching for you.
Stretching out with arms and love made of that light.
Last long enough to reach us.
We will hold you and nurture your Strong.
We can do this–together.
I may not know you,
but I can promise you with all sincerity
that I am here and I have love for you.
I’ll see you in the morning for breakfast.
Always and deeply love.
