You Are Loved (Summer's Theme)

Bipolar Explorer
Michael Serafin-Wells


Don’t feel lonely
I’m right here.
Don’t cry
Nothing is wasted.
Pack the good memories And leave the rest. Travel light
It suits you.
You are not damaged
I can tell
By the way you love me. We’re all of us
Covered in scars

And it doesn’t stop us from living.
There’s nothing wrong with you.
Like everyone,
You need to be loved.
And you are...

Hugging her things close, in his grief, he hoped somehow to wring her presence into being.
