I’m thinking about you. Right now. Isn’t it strange how we can be miles and miles apart, yet so close in the folds of my mind? So far from one another, yet still looking at the same stars?
I don’t know exactly where you are right now. Maybe in a bedroom, staring at your reflection in a cloudy mirror. Maybe on a bus, watching cars drift past a darkened window. Maybe in the arms of someone who makes you happy. Maybe tired, so so tired from the rush of the day.
I don’t know where your body rests, how you’re feeling, or what you need.
All I hope is that tonight brings you healing.
I hope the day softens as it comes to a close. I hope the sunset makes your heart feel calm and warm. I hope your shower is soothing and your pillows are cool against your cheeks. I hope before you fall asleep, you close your eyes with a smile that stretches small and gentle across your lips.
I hope that no matter what has hurt you in the last hours, last days, last weeks you take a deep breath and exhale it out into the night sky.
I hope you know that someone loves you, and is praying for your strength.
I know that this life is hard sometimes. I know there are moments when you don’t know what you want, when you give your all and come up short, when you can’t find the strength to move forward and you feel as if you’ll be stuck in one place forever. You won’t.
I know that you’ve probably felt lonely, probably felt afraid or weak ore that everything around you was spinning and you were powerless to stop it. But you’re more powerful than you think.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I don’t know. I don’t know where you are or how heavy your heart is. I don’t know what obstacles have been on your path or what hardships you’ve had to face.
I don’t know if you’ve been broken, or if you’re broken still.
All I know is that I care, so so deeply for you. And wherever you are, whatever you’re going through, I hope you find healing.
I hope you find healing in a lover’s touch or a hug from a loved one. I hope you find healing in a stranger’s smile or a cup of coffee with just the right amount of cream and sugar. I hope you find healing in an unexpected laugh or a tiny miracle.
I hope you find healing where you least expect, and I hope it makes you feel whole again.
Because somewhere in this world, there’s a girl who loves you. A girl who’s awake at night, pouring her heart onto pages. A girl who’s miles and miles away, imagining your tired soul and praying that you find strength. Praying that somehow, someway, through some invisible and beautiful bond, you’ll realize she’s thinking of you. And that you will rest your weary eyes and wake up renewed.
