Today, You're Broken

I wish I could make the world a better place for you. I wish I could hug you and make it all go away. I wish I could make your heart sing again. I wish I could take all that weight you insist on carrying, throw it away and help you start fresh and light and free. I wish I could remove the veil from your beautiful eyes and see them sparkle and shine and laugh because I know that's what they were always meant to do. Today, you're broken and I can't fix you.

There are things you need to learn for yourself. There are mistakes you need to make, tunnels you need to go through, rivers you need to cross, plateaus where you need to stop and breathe (always breathe) and I can't go there. I have my own mistakes, my own tunnels, my own rivers and plateaus and I still need to learn to breathe (always breathe) again, some more. Our paths aren't meant to cross right now. Maybe later, but right now there's nothing I can do.

Today, you're broken and I can't fix you.

Please know that you are loved. Always loved. Forever loved. There are people out there who would move mountains for you, hail angels for you, raise sunshine for you and they would all do it with a smile. But we don't, because we know you'll smile more when you do it all yourself.

Today, you're broken and one day you'll fix you.
