a moment of unconditional love

Sit with me on the couch and put your head on my lap. Breathe. There’s a movie playing on TV as I start massaging your scalp. Watch it. Just be. Your day was filled with dread and anxiety. But now you are here with me. And you are safe. Feel my fingers in your hair. I will always keep you safe in my arms and in my soul. Even when I get angry with you, I will keep your secrets safe in my heart. I feel the weight drop off your shoulder, and you take a deep breath. That’s right. You are relaxing underneath my fingertips. And when it seems as if the whole world is turning against you, I am here. Because I love you, and I will always take care of you.
