"When the world seems so cruel, and your heart makes you feel like a fool, I promise you will see, that I will be your remedy" Remedy – Adele
I understand that you've been hurt in the past, it's difficult for you to be vulnerable, and to open up to someone else. I understand that you want to protect your heart. So do I.
But I've known you for quite some time now and we are no longer strangers. I've grown to love you and my instinct has allowed me to nurture you, to care for you, to protect you.
You haven't been able to completely let me in, but you've allowed me into your life. You've allowed me to get close to you. And when I'm close, I can see and sense that your heart craves love.
With the time I've spent with you, I've been able to discern your character. I know when you feel as though you need to put up a front while your thick layers hide the real you. I can see that you want to be able to have faith in love again and that you long to feel trust.
But with me you don't need to be so tough, you don't need to have your guard up because I know you – the real you. I get you. I understand you and I love you.
I wish you could see that – when you're hurting, I'm here for you. You aren't alone. The world really isn't so cruel. If you've experienced a love that didn't last, there's a love right in front of you that's waiting to be there for you forever.
I know that life isn't fair. When one moment you think you've got it all figured out then suddenly you have the rug pulled from under you, it can be traumatic.
But I would hold you until the pain subsides. I would be your shelter through the storm. I would be your remedy – until you're able to love and trust again.
