A Gentle Touch and a Word of Comfort

Welcome, beautiful traveler. I greet you with an observation and an offering.

It seems to me that in this world, it does not happen often enough that those who have a gentle touch and a word of comfort to offer find those who need such things the most.

So tonight, by the light of a moon just shy of full, I do offer my hand across the miles to rest upon your back or cheek should you wish it, along with this assurance: whatever so deeply troubles you will pass. Step out into the moonlight, if you can. Imagine that its blue glow is the embrace that I send you. Lay your head upon your pillow as though it were my lap. Weep or laugh or simply relax, but know that I want you to feel better. And remember that the good in you is so much greater than the problems besieging you, and that all will be well as long as you make the decision to keep hope in your heart.

Thank you, goddess of love, for this opportunity to give.

Lovingly yours,

A devotee

You are beautiful, Devotee.

You truly are.

You are one way awesome human being.

I hope you know that.

Devotee said...

Not sure how to say this without sounding egotistical, but I actually do know that I'm awesome.

At least kind of.

Unfortunately, knowledge of my awesomeness only serves to make me even more frustrated that I'm not able to achieve the contentment I feel I so richly deserve.

It's sort of like, "Wow, Devotee, what kind of loser do you have to be to be this awesome and still not be 100% happy?"

; )

You're quite awesome and beautiful yourself, by the way.

Strumpet said...

Strangely enough, I know what you mean in some ways.

Actually, in a lot of ways I get what you are saying.

And, awww, thank you.

Now I'm blushing.


Devotee said...

See? Now you've gone and one-upped me by blushing and showing your humility.

knows it


I call that one a win for you.
