Today, a child ran into my arms. He held my face in my hands. And ever so softly, he said I miss you. Inside, my heart nodded. Yes, yes this is what Love is. I held my breath because for me, this was as close as witnessing a miracle. Love. And it was here. Here standing right in front of me. And though, immense in being, I did not run away.
I stood in awe. How such a little person came to manifest it. And with the littlest of words, he had proven all that I had blindly believed in in all of my existence. That at the root of it all, it is simple a pure courageous instinct. A thread between living breathing beings that does not know or care for reason. Just feeling.
It made itself known today. Though it had been teaching me for ever, behind faces of truth. The truth I had been searching for. Longing for. To Open Heart. Just as is.
Perhaps I am but a simple fool. To believe in such things. But I knew it then; And I know it now. That the most bravest of souls are those not afraid to feel. And those souls be it children. Teaching me how to love. Just as is.
