Alone, helpless, utterly dependent - we came to the world.

Alone, helpless, utterly dependent - we leave this Earth,

regardless of fame, fortune, power, position.


Inherently needy

is not the same as

independently alone.


Blessed are you 

if you share your life with a beloved, 

yoked through happiness and frustration, joy and pain,

together and alone,

love and hate,

betrayal, disgrace,

as partners,

as friends.


Blessed am I 

if my journey’s loyal companion is my shadow till the end,
