I felt that in you today.
I wanted to console you, I wished to reassure you, I long to tell you I am still here…
Your eyes met mine, three times today. And if my eyes could only speak to yours, maybe, just maybe, it would lessen that feeling of fear in you… knowing you are not alone.
If a simple hug encapsulates so many words, and a simple tap of the shoulder would mean ‘Don’t worry, you still have me.’, I would hug you all day and tap your shoulder every now and then.
You worry too much, and that makes me worry about you more.
But for now, all I can do is listen… from the other end of the line.
