Kindred Comfort

Where there is kindred, there is comfort.

Two Individual alike, yet distinct in these moments.

Two lives: threatened in youth; restored with consequence.

Two hearts: broken, beyond repair; stitched together, no fear of rejection.

Yet,

One longs to embrace a new heart while the other struggles to take ownership of the heart gifted to her.

One looks forward with anticipation while the other looks back in remembrance.

One waits while the other waits alongside.
