Sometimes I wish I could wrap my heart around the world.
Sometimes I wish I could heal every hurt.
And soothe every fear. And hold every hand.
And whisper ‘You’re never, ever alone.’ in every ear.
But I can’t. So I’ll do it right here.
Because love can travel anywhere.
And kindness costs nothing.
But could change absolutely everything.
I want you to know that your presence is a gift.
I want you to know that I understand what it’s like to feel hopeless.
But there is always hope. One breath at a time.
One step at a time. Side by side or miles apart
We can move forward together because we belong to each other.
You and me – we can do anything.
Sometimes I wish I could wrap my arms around you.
Sometimes I wish I could climb inside your troubled mind.
And ease your self-doubt. And help you see your light.
And remind you of your beauty inside and out.
But I can’t. So I’ll remind you right now.
Because there’s no distance between us.
And time does not exist.
So maybe, I can travel back to the me that needed reminding, too.
I want her to know that life is worth living.
I want her to know that dreams are worth having.
And that one day, even if some don’t come true,
She’ll be able to say ‘It’s OK, because I am here.
Wrapping my heart around the world. Around us.
And maybe, I wouldn’t change a thing.’
