Comfort – Imagine a World of Tenderness

John Lennon Imagine to play along with your read


As I approached a corner stop sign the other day , I saw two young people bundled up from the cold standing close together. Their hoodies were over their heads as they helded tightly, toe to toe.

Mesmerized, by the intimacy of a young couple, I watched as the young girl, bowing her head,  leaning closely into the young mans chest.  Her shoulders dropped in utter sadness.

Thankfully there were no cars behind me at the stop sign, for being fixated on such tenderness and comfort, as I watch the most gentle motion of two arms enfold the sadden girl in an unbreakable embrace.

He held her gently as she moved closer, she placed her hands and arms on his chest, deeply entrenched, in their loving comfort for each other.

Tears came to my eyes as I watched both hooded heads bow into each other in a comforting embrace.

The outside world did not exist at that moment, for these two young people.  Most important was the sharing of comfort and care.

The gentleness of touch, the vulnerability to tell a close secret and accept the love that comes in the lingering embrace when there is an experience of pain in life.

Driving onto my destination, immediately writing the entwined vision of two young strangers, the emotion filled my being in this moment, touched  deeply to tears.

All living creatures in this world need comfort, care, gentleness, understanding followed by an embrace.

An embrace that allows the depths of loving tenderness, shutting out the world. Acquiesced to trust, avowing unadulterated exposure to another.

The quintessential of reliance in unadulterated faith, to be touched deeply.

All too often we want love in our lives – we see others in gentle embrace; in that moment we sigh in some degree of remembrance, our deepest internal desires;

precious Love!

Do we allow ourselves a cherished vulnerability, to have this wondrous human touch? 

Another person’s treasured embrace .

Is it time, we all begin to allow ourselves to be exposed, welcoming the warmth from others?

Imagine a world of compassion, we might not have hunger, nor homeless, or fear of losing.

We might have a complete trust in ourselves, allowing others’ to touch our hearts, our spirits, breathe a completeness.

No threats, simply comfort in one another.

as stated John Lennon’s’ song, Imagine”.

Imagine there is no heaven 

It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one

Lennon, John

    Human touch and affection are definitely so important. I think that is why sexual and physical abuse is so difficult to bear because when human touch is used to hurt others it seems like the greatest crime.

    But even beyond those who do not experience such trauma, making ourselves vulnerable always comes at risk to being left, being hurt, being abandoned by those that we grow to love. The future is uncertain, and given how much hurt can debilitate us with depression and grief we also fear to put us in such positions. What we have to accept is that such grief is always unavoidable and that there is always loss, but if persevere we find that there is always gain as well. If you appreciate and cherish each wonderful moment when you have it, then the pursuit of those moments is always worth it. 🙂

      Well stated, although I think we could write a book on the vulnerability subject………….
