to hold the world tenderly

i have fallen into a place
where all i want to do
is hold you and the whole world
as a loving father holds a distressed child

no need to do or say anything
no explanations
no reasons
no should or shouldn’ts
just this tender holding

in such a moment
something divine happens
and all the knots we have tied
and the pains we have carried
dissolve by themselves

it is a kind of grace
and power that allows all things
to just be as they are

oh! if only we could
simply see each other clearly
we may stop all this madness.

if you have no children
there may come a point where
you adopt the whole world.
