If I could,
I’d give you the sun
wrapped in joy and love
because it’s you
who I think the world of
I’d bring a cup of warmth
for your coldest days
and my eraser of compassion
would take away your pain
If only I could
you know I would

It certainly can.
So simple, yet so profound.
My thoughts, too, Jean…I almost didn’t post it, thinking it’s too simple, but then again, it’s message is profound and we can never have too much kindness. Thank you! 🙂
Strange isn’t it how we can lose sight of how potential posts may impact on others.
Well, it’s that old self doubt that tries to sneak in, but sometimes, the heart and mind know better. Thanks again! 🙂

This is wonderful Lauren. Your visual here reminds me of a few days ago. We took my visiting sister to a nearby wildlife park. Brother and sister bears were sitting together, playfully biting at each other and staying very close, much as this photo of yours. It was really touching to see the affectionate side of these huge, lumbering grizzlies. And yes, those small gestures are so meaningful!
