I will not pretend to understand what you’re going through, the extreme sadness that you’re feeling. Because I may not know the right words to say.
But know this. I will always be here for you. No matter how long it takes.
I will listen to you. Lend my shoulder for you to lean or cry on. Buy you ice cream. Open my heart to you.
I do not profess to be stronger than you. Or wiser. On the contrary, I may just be as weak or weaker. But I know, that together, we can pull this one through.
And, if dusk begins to set, you will not be alone. I will continue to be beside you. But, if perchance you would want to be alone, know that my heart will stay with you as well as my loving thoughts and prayers.
So, take courage, my friend. The sadness cannot hold you forever. A new day is coming. And I will be here to await your awakening. Then we can walk together.
Into the sunshine.
P.S. The coffee’s brewing for you and me…
