If you love someone…

“When you love someone,

the best thing you can offer is your presence.

How can you love

if you are not there?” Thich Nhat Hanh

“I am here for you”

 is probably the most loving sentence

we can say to another person,

and then stop what we are doing,

and practice being present.

We don’t have to “do” or say anything,

just practice “being”.

We look with tenderness

and compassion

into the other person’s eyes.

Maybe we touch gently

the other’s hand or arm

if invited and allowed.

We breathe deeply,

and are just still.

No fixing,

No explaining,

No rationalizing,

No distracting.

Just being present.

“I am here for you”

The ultimate expression

of loving.
