I saw behind the strength of the man, the kindness, love and care he gave to others, but rarely to himself.
I saw deep.
I saw the hurt child within.
My heart cried in pain for him, what had been, all he had seen.
I called upon the Sun & Moon to shine their Celestial Light upon the darkness that cast a shadow over his life.
Reaching out friendship’s hand, I bid him leave his worries and concerns. They could wait another day.
Time now to be carefree and just play.
Seeing the reticence in his eyes, I smiled and reassured, as my own inner child whispered…
‘It’s OK, I know. I hurt too.’
So from the mundane world we walked away and went off to find Starfish on the beach and magic in the forest deep.
