All who would win must share it. Happiness was born a twin. -Lord Byron
Sometimes we are less a person than a place for those we love. Our hearts are the hearts sought by the lonely.
I offer those I love the steadiness of my companionship when times grow difficult and dark. Recognizing that my familiar presence offers comfort and dignity to those I cherish, I stand my ground, rooted in the love between us. As my beloveds undergo difficult passages, I walk beside them. I offer compassion, humor, honor for their strength. I am a loving witness. I am steadfast, loyal and strong for those I love.
Today I celebrate my role as a companion to those I love. I offer witness and good cheer. I light the steady lamp of compassionate attention. My heart is a lantern guide for those I love.
