"I really just want to be the warm yellow light that pours all over everyone I love." That's one of the beautiful things about feeling alone - it's one of those things that teaches you how to extend love without expecting anything in return.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. (Thomas Merton: No Man Is An Island)
