With All That You Are

Love…
…that is given time, heals. Our days apart brought a clear knowing of how much you mean to me. Alone in the quiet within myself, I listened to my heart and it whispered loudly, “you love him still with all that you are”.

Dutch-born Catholic priest and writer Henri Nouwen

we know
that without
silence,
words
lose their
meaning,
that without
listening,
speaking
no longer
heals,
that without
distance,
closeness
cannot
cure.
