Once you see the scars, you can’t forget them.
Once you feel the hurt, it writes itself on your memories.
Once you hear the stories, your own heart breaks.
And there’s no other option but to humbly respond.
There’s nobody on this green-blue earth who will every fully understand…
But you show up anyway.
You know you can’t fix anything.
You just know love forever wins.
You know your words ever-matter.
Because they are stardust & bone – just like us.
Because Love should never have an expiration date.
Because they are worth showing up for.
And I will.
I will stand still with you, walk with you.
I will cry and laugh, mourn and dance.
But most of all, I will stay.
