Take me back to the basics and the simple life.
Sometimes, you get more than you bargained for.
Sometimes the life that you once wished for is too much for you bear.
As much as you try to keep moving, sometimes you need respite.
Running on empty, you turn to the creature comforts that give you peace of mind.
A picture of a cherished childhood memory.
A fleece blanket.
Chocolate ice cream or a little brother’s laugh.
A sweatshirt, two sizes too big.
Bob Dylan, Amy Winehouse.
A long walk or a warm bath.
An old movie, a new book.
A mother’s voice on the phone.
Your touch, my comfort, and my lullaby.
You reach for the people who show you what love looks like.
Holding on tight, sleeping at night.
“Get some rest.”
Everything will be okay.
