I was given the rare privilege of glimpsing something precious recently.
'Maybe love is simply standing quietly next to someone at the times in their lives when they need and want someone to stand with them.'
'Just standing there in the night. Next to someone who would otherwise be alone.'
The elegant simplicity of the emotion made me weep.
It gives me a tiny bit of hope, yanno?
