tigger quote

What’s Mickey without Minnie?
What’s Tigger without Pooh?
What’s Donald without Daisy?
What’s Me without You?

And when Elmo isn’t ticklish,
And Pooh Bear hates honey,
When Tigger stops bouncing,
And Goofy isn’t funny.

When Peter Pan can’t fly,
And Simba never roars,
When Alice in Wonderland
Can’t fit through small doors.

When Dumbo’s ears are small,
And happily ever after isn’t true,
That’s when I will stop loving you.

Come,
Step into the light so that your scars gleam,
And your tears shine.
Let me run my fingers along your skin,
So that I may feel your broken bones
And weary muscles.

I am not a healer, but I promise you,
I can show you what it feels like to be cared for.
I will caress every scar with appreciation
And brush your tears away so that you can see clearly.
I will wrap those brittle bones in tight cloth
So that you won’t fall apart.
And lastly, I will be there to take your hand,
Whispering sweet nothings until you rest.
