Letters from a Young Father

Bibi Kosherovahas quotedlast year
You are not the first
The sun has kissed nor the last
But we will hold you and kiss you
Like the very first and the very last
No wind has blown through your hair
No ground has touched your feet
But you are in our every step
& all the air
You are still beyond time
But in our eyes you are already forever
Neither boy nor girl
We raise your tiny heart to the sun
& offer the promise of you to the sky
To the earth & to the wind
Let them bless those fresh first heartbeats
Those tiny knocks on our door
Born from courage
And the faith
Of this new soul called
You

wholeness that comes with peace

The peace behind the leap of faith

The faith we touched when we rested our

Only lent

There are questions that only exist

To be asked

Never answered

t

So get out of the way

Let life guide you

Whoever it is

Wherever

Whatever the price

Reach out to them with abandon

Love truthfully

And faithfully

Because if you don’t

You’ll end up

Sharing your days with someone

Who reminds you of the one

You were born to die for

& that’s not living

say that God exists might be a lie

But to say He doesn’t is an even bigger one
Fara Stefanihas quoted3 months ago
Have the courage

To find meaning without them

True meaning

Is understanding rather than knowing

Understanding that

Although you will never hold all the whys or the wherefores

You can live deeply and faithfully nonetheless
Fara Stefanihas quoted3 months ago
Answers are not the answer

It’s the question that counts

Instead of wasting away

Searching for answers

We all deserve the chance to return the gift

With the same courage and simplicity

No matter whether the promise

Will last one blink

Or a lifetime
Fara Stefanihas quoted3 months ago
Never give to receive

Or kiss to be kissed

Never hold to be held

Or love to be loved

Your light does not live

In the eyes of others

But in the peace of your palm

When you give just to give

It lives on the lip of your lips

When you kiss just to kiss

On the tip of your touch

When you hold just to hold

In the abandon of your heart

When you love just to love

& if you follow this with the simplicity

Only wisdom may bring

Then all the light you spread

Will be returned
Fara Stefanihas quoted3 months ago
When you think your life has turned grey

Reminding you how empty

The water was in the beginning

& how far you’ve come

Without realizing it
Davidhas quoted2 years ago
When Life seems to turn against you
Be flattered
It’s Her way of showing
How much faith She has
Davidhas quoted2 years ago
If you pretend to be
The master of your heart
Then no matter how high the castle
You will only feel the depth of its moat
Davidhas quoted2 years ago
This is the name we look for
A name you could butter bread with
And sugar coffee
A name already so deeply baked into
The bones of our home
All we need
Is to listen for it
Princess Trblhas quoted2 years ago
She took my hand—pressed it against her chest
She was crying but I kept quiet
Slid my foot between hers
My knee cupped her bent leg
The sun set—the room slipped into near dark
The lights of the city against our skin
My lips on her shoulder I whispered
I’m scared
She nodded—That was enough
