Our Best Option

I love you…

Perhaps the most powerful words in the universe. Words so powerful they bring people to tears, drop the strongest of us to our knees, open minds, and end wars.

Words so powerful they’re often too hard to say and so instead are uttered through small, beautiful acts.

Words so powerful, they change relationships permanently, as if opening the eyes further, planting the feet deeper, and growing the heart. Words that wash over us like the tide of a baptism, reaching so far inside, we feel as though our soul is exposed, that our birth is on display.

I love you…

These words have saved us a million times over: an ancient remedy for the humans, a glowing ball of magic we carry in our pocket, reserved under treaty and released with grace.

Often our last resort but always our best option.

I love you.
