precious gift

No, I was not busy when you came!
I was not preparing to be busy.
That's the armour everyone puts on
to pretend they had a purpose in the world. 

Naomi Shihab Nye
excerpt: Red Brocade

The most precious gift you can give
to the one you love is your true presence. 

Do you have enough time to love?

My dear, I am here for you.  

Thich Nhat Hanh
True Love 

... Why not become the one who lives
with the full moon in each eye
that is always saying
with that sweet moon language 
what every other eye in this
world is dying to hear.
