“Let love into your heart,”
“Life is much better with it. Trust me. Trust me on this one.”
His face rose,
from looking at his feet, to seeing her.
“Let yourself be vulnerable,”
she said softly.
“Let yourself be loved. And let yourself love someone else.”
She smiled at him. A smile of warmth,
light in the dark room.
“You’ve been alone for too long.”
He nodded. A gentle nod.
It wasn’t a lot, but she didn’t expect a lot.
It was a beginning.
