For Laurathere were no words to take the sorrow away-
but there were words to allow the
sorrow to be present.
and these i offer you, my friend.
i will listen as long as you need me to.
and hold you longer than you ask.
who you are is who i love.
we don't need to pretend that it's all okay.
all we need to do is be.
