Waging Wars

“Darling, you aren’t
irreparable and broken.
You’re the light in my life
and I need you.”

Darling, whenever you need the reminder, know you are going to win this fight. Because you aren’t the only one waging a war inside. You see, it’s the way you rise. The way you let go. Because nothing can hold you down. And, even though you don’t need it, I’ll help you stand every time you stumble and fall. Just like you do for me. Because you aren’t too much. You aren’t irreparable and broken. You’re the light in my life and I need you to stay with me.

Maybe that makes me selfish. But that’s okay, as long as I have you.

Everything is okay
as long as I have you.

  1. Super post, Sarah!!! Loved the deep emotion and caring expressed! Loved your last two lines best – “You’re the light in my life and I need you to stay with me.
    Maybe that makes me selfish. But that’s okay, as long as I have you.”
