There is not a single soul on Earth
With whom to share these thoughts and fears
Confined within my mind, worse things seem to birth
It's times like this I wish that you were here
With a palpable presence that is undeniable
And a sense of peace and comfort that is indefinable
Right now, it is all I can do just to fight these tears
Threatening to pour fourth with unwelcome relief
Unless you with your unconditional love are near
To reinforce that in myself I can still have belief
I would give almost anything to feel your hug
An embrace that says I'm safe no matter what

We're all a bunch of human hypocrites, I don't care who you are. The true hypocrite forgets that fact.
When love rings true, it lasts.
Sometimes it is not anything tangible, but an act that communicates love best. Take that into consideration when giving from the heart to a loved one. Also, recognize why love offered may not be felt.
