my heart looks like your heart

my heart looks like your heart

Saturday, April 26, 2014

sometimes you carry them, sometimes they carry you

when you love others
sometimes you carry them
sometimes they carry you

not like a weight
not like a burden

more like the way skydivers soar together
or children ride piggyback
or spirit guides and guardian angels provide covering ... 

what makes this work
is trust.
knowing you are safe.
knowing you are safe in the heart and hands of another.

sometimes we feel called to be with those we love
when they are grieving
searching for their breath.

it isn't that we expect them to keep us company
it isn't that we expect them to have anything to give
it isn't that we expect to do anything at all for them.
sometimes it is just to be there.
not to talk.
not to do.
it is about just sharing the same space.
sharing breath when they can't find their own.
just being together.
it's about presence.
it's about love.

nothing more.
nothing less.

and presence.
