I’m writing to tell you the things I really want you to know. Do be patient with me: Some might be difficult to put into words; others may be hard to say in the first place.
First, I love you. You are precious. You are essential.
Next, I would like to ask your forgiveness, for the times I ignored your pain or told you to be quiet. You did have important things to tell me, but I couldn’t or didn’t want to hear you.
Sometimes, hearts are hard to understand. You can speak so softly or deliver your message in such challenging riddles. I have often misunderstood you or missed what you said altogether.
I am coming to know you more fully, as I feel your presence and honor you. I will continue to learn your language so that we communicate much better.
Meanwhile, please keep talking. Help me know God, you, myself – you are part of my Self. Keep offering wisdom, feelings, knowledge and even questions.
Without you, I am only a shadow; the sparkles in a stream without depth, that dries up as soon as the heat comes.
Thank you for being such an important part of who I am.
